About

For a whole day, we paddle dictated by the tides, wind and the sun, enjoying two relaxing breaks for morning tea and lunch. We leave plenty of time to learn new paddling skills and feel comfortable on the water at a slow paddle pace.

Itinerary

We will meet and greet the group in Hussikson before heading to our launch location for handy technique and paddle skills briefing. It's then setting out in double sea kayaks for approximately 1.5 hours, taking in the coastline and the expanses of the Jervis Bay waterway. Your guide will select a relaxing spot in the shade for a rest break and a hot cuppa tea with light refreshments/fruit.

Once we are recharged we will get back in the kayaks and explore the Booderee National Park, learning some of Jervis Bay's historic significance. It is very likely to see whales and dolphins on this trip and we will be taking the best option on the day for spotting the amazing animals. We ll stop again for lunch, a delicious selection of locally made salad wraps plus additional snacks and fruit. Time again for another kayak to take it all in before heading back to the landing site. This is a superb adventure to attend individually or with a friend. Many women turn up individually. We will help you partner up on the day and you can swap around with your paddle buddy if you choose.

FAQs

So, what exactly is Women Want Adventure? Do I have to be a young, super fit, experienced adventurer to attend? Nope, you certainly do not. You can be a beginner to advanced (or anywhere in-between). Women Want Adventure is all about women coming together to try something new, make friendships, experience challenges, surprises and enjoyment of adventure. Our youngest member is mid 20 s, our oldest is 71, and 75% of women turn up individually.

Do I need to book with a friend if they are double sea kayaks? No. We will partner you up on the day.

Is there a minimum or maximum age limit? All trips are for women over the age of 18 years. We don t have an age limit however, we encourage you to read the grading to ensure you are feeling fit and confident to complete the adventure.

I m not a member, can I still book this trip? Indeed you can.You don t need to be a member to book any of our trips, but you ll miss out on special bonuses, first email notifications, discounts and offers. Not to mention a t-shirt! Some of our trips sell quickly, so it helps you get on board early. Once you ve gotten a feel for the community, you re more than welcome to join further down the track.

What do I need to wear in the kayak? Tights or shorts. Anything you are comfortable in and you don t mind getting wet. You can wear your swimmers under your clothing in summer or bring them with you. During winter, it s best to bring a thermal or long sleeve top to keep warm.

I m worried I m not fit enough and have never been kayaking before. This trip is suitable for first time kayakers and beginners. Our guides will teach you basic skills and make sure you feel comfortable and safe. All women are in double kayaks which makes the paddling much easier.
