What you'll do

You can ggl 'By Earth & Ocean' to find all my direct contact details and ask any questions but here is the general info;

We meet 5 mins from Noosa Junction and away from the crowds and hustle of Noosa. You'll suddenly find yourself in nature at the edge of Lake Weyba. This lake is connected all the way through to the Everglades.

Once we've got you comfortable in the kayaks, we'll launch and start our adventure with a short 15min paddle across the lake to find the hidden entry way into the creeks. As you cross the lake look to the skies to see the local Sea Eagles climbing the thermals whilst they hunt for their lunch.

As the only tour group within this section of Noosa's waterways you'll have it all to yourself. We turn off the lake and into the calm (often glass like) waters of Eenie Creek. They are packed with BEAUTIFUL stingrays. There are several different kinds and with the shallow water, you'll be spotting them with 5minutes!

It's a calming, relaxing trip as you listen to nature and effortless glide through mangroves and bush.

The whole experience lasts around 2hours.
Other things to note
It's a really gentle, calm experience and amazing for relaxing along with some exercise.

You'll have a lovely time but expect to get wet, even if you don't go for a swim you'll get a few splashes so wear something you're comfortable in and that's fine to get wet.

Where you'll be

We launch onto Lake Weyba which is connected through to all of Noosa's waterways and the Everglades. From the lake we take a blissful trip up Eenie Creek to experience nature, a touch of the Everglades and that feeling of being a first time explorer in an undisturbed world. It's a haven for Stingrays and the shallow waters make it easy for sitings

Rated 4.94 out of 5 from 34 reviews.

If you are looking for a very special experience, with a very special person in a very serene part of the world, then you need to hook up with Paul of Earth & Ocean. It was our most favourite time in Sunshine Coast and we will be booking again and will also be trying out e-bike experience in the Noosa National Park.

We had a wonderful morning kayaking the Noosa waterways, hunting for stingrays! Paul was a knowledgeable and friendly host with great stories to tell about the local region. The snacks and drinks were spot on to keep our bodies fuelled for all that paddling. I particularly loved how peaceful it was floating down the river in our kayaks just listening to nature, bliss. I would 100% recommend this experience to others.

What an absolutely fantastic trip. Definitely put a kayaking trip with Paul on top of your Noosa must-do list! I’ve been to Noosa many times and never experienced it like this. Paul is super lovely and attentive and makes you feel very welcome and at home on the water regardless of your kayaking abilities. Although I was by myself he made me feel very comfortable and made sure the whole group made fast friends. He is obviously very passionate about the area and you enjoying you time on the paddle which definitely happens (it flies by). The actual paddling isn’t difficult and Paul’s stories and snacks along the way make it so enjoyable. The scenery is fantastic and Paul is very genuine so it feels like a local experience not like you are just a number joining some touristy gimmick. Highly recommend to anyone that visits the area!
