Penguin and Seal Island Day Tour

Paddling a sea kayak is a unique and intimate way to explore Penguin & Seal Islands.
Get up close and personal with the sea lions, cruise past colonies of pelicans and take in the rugged islands. Tours are led by a qualified instructor who will take you on a guided walk and snorkelling (in the warmer summer months) on Penguin Island. Sometimes we even see the dolphins! It’s a fun filled day suitable for beginners and advanced paddlers.
