Trip Description:

Experience the magic of the Jervis Bay Marine Park with its stunning waterways, rocky foreshores and gorgeous beaches all just a paddle stroke away on this tailored Sit On Top Kayak adventure.

Meeting at Huskisson s Dent street Kayak lunching area we will set off stingray and sea eagle spotting on the clear waters of Currembene Creek checking out the beautiful mangrove environments and shallow sand edges of this diverse estuary system. We will cruise along taking in the sights and sounds of river life before spinning out into the bay for some open water action, keeping an eye out for the local resident bottlenose dolphins. Stopping for morning tea, a relax on the beach and a swim, we will crack out the Anzac biscuits and other yummy goodies and chat over coffee or tea. If you have snorkeling gear then it is worth bringing it along as we may be near one of our lovely rocky reefs and the chance for a look into the world under the waves.

Into the kayaks again and we will meander back to our launching area and finish off a sensational morning on the water.
