Where you'll be

In the Northern Beaches, just an hour outside Sydney, we'll paddle into Pittwater, Sydney's "other harbour", bordered by a national park. Kayaking around Scotland Island & Lovett Bay, it's easy to envy the off shore residents who live on Pittwater. See where bushland meets the beach in our backyard.

Rated 4.86 out of 5 from 66 reviews.

As a first-time experience in a kayak, this was the best. Our host Helen explained everything clearly and paddled alongside until we got the hang of it. Then she guided us around beautiful Pittwater and led the way to a waterfall in the forest. All up, a top experience.

We had a great kayaking experience with Helen and Phil, who was our tour guide. Our route along Scotland Island and into Elvina Bay was fantastic, with beautiful nature and stunning views. Highlight of the trip was floating amongst the mangroves in Night Bay. The bush walk was short, but very interesting, as Phil was able to share lots of knowledge about plants and wildlife in general. Our lunch break was great as well, lovely spot, fresh fruit and baked goods. Overall very recommended!

What a treat! Helen was friendly and accommodating as me and my partner were inexperienced kayakers. Phil our instructor on the day was everything you want in a tour guide a much more. Not only is he very knowledgeable about the area, local flora and a big conservationist. He took his time to make this journey a truly wonderful experience. This is an experience we will never forget and something we plan to revisit in the near future. Thanks again to Helen & Phil, you guys made our weekend!

Ross was such a great guide to the world of kayaking and the nature. It was our very first time kayaking, but he taught us very well, and we could feel secure and confident on the beautiful water. Kayaking through the mangrove forest was stunning, it was absolutely beautiful experience. This is the tour you should do if you like to feel peaceful and energised on the water.
