Get a taste of adventure by sea kayak as a means to get you to some of the best south coast locations of Jervis Bay. July is the perfect time to spot whales and dolphins in the marine park.
This one day, sea kayaking trip is one of our most popular trips for Women Want Adventure. There is always something stunning to see from the water and every trip provides a different perspective of the bay.
You don t need to have any previous kayaking experience and we welcome beginners.
We will begin the day with a safety briefing on the beach and some handy technique advice before heading off on our first relaxed kayaking session of approximately 1.25 hours taking in the coastline and the expanses of the Jervis Bay waterway.
Your Women Want Adventure Leader Tracy Gibson will select the best option for a beach break and there will be plenty of time to chill out if you prefer just having a cup of tea or coffee on the beach or going for a little walk. Morning tea will be served up with plunger coffee, freshly baked cake and fresh cut fruit. We cater for gluten and lactose free so make sure you tell us in your booking form.
Once we are recharged we will get back in the kayaks and explore the Booderee National Park, learning about some of Jervis Bay's historic significance. In June it is very likely to see whales and we will be taking the best option on the day for spotting the amazing animals.
After another explore via kayak it's time for Lunch. A delicious selection of locally made 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 of the ladies on Women Want Adventure trips turn up on their own and by the end of a trip have made really good friends with the ladies in the group.

What to bring:
Please Note: Minimum numbers do apply. All sea kayak trips are generally conducted in Expedition Double Sea Kayaks unless you have prior Sea Kayaking Experience in Single Kayaks. The use of Double ( Tandem ) Sea Kayaks allows us to venture further, and affords paddlers rest time to relax and take in the amazing scenery of Jervis Bay and it's surrounds. We will be in contact to discuss which kayak is best for you. If you would like to be in a double kayak with a friend please let us know upon booking.
