Will I see dolphins?

You will be paddling in the famous Cape Byron Marine Park where dolphins, turtles and whales roam free. On most tours we spot dolphins and from June to November, we often spot whales. Many other species of marine life are also spotted in the marine park including tropical fish and manta rays. If you don't see a dolphin, whale or turtle, you can join us for another tour for FREE! 

Will I get wet?

YES - it's all part of the fun! We provide you with wetsuits in cooler months to keep you warm. Only waterproof cameras are suitable.

What happens if it rains?

A little rain never hurt anybody, in fact the rainy days often present smooth and calm ocean conditions, perfect for paddling and spotting marine life!  Our guides are trained surf lifesavers and know when it is safe to run a tour. Sometimes tours need to be cancelled due to strong winds or large swells, however the rain is often welcomed in such a warm climate. We will provide you with wetsuits in cooler months to ensure you're warm at all times.

How fit do I need to be?

All you need is a sense of adventure. Paddling a kayak is very easy, no experience is necessary.

I don't have anyone to paddle with, can I come alone?

Yes! We will buddy you up with another single or one of our paddle guides.

What if I can't swim?

That's fine, we often have non-swimmers on our tours! All paddlers are fitted with a lifejacket and our tours are all run by local surf lifesavers. If for any reason you were to come out of your kayak (very very unlikely) your jacket would keep you afloat and you would be in the safest possible hands. *Please notify your guide before the tour if you are a non-swimmer.

What do I need to bring?

All you need is your swimmers, we provide the rest! We provide snacks and drinks and can even pick you up from your accommodation at no additional charge. You may also like to bring a hat and sunnies (optional).

Are the tours safe for children?

YES - children over the age of 5 are welcome. Some of our kayaks can even sit a child between 2 adults. We have a 100% safety record and every tour is run by a surf lifesaver ensuring your child is in the safest possible hands. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Please notify of children paddling when booking.

Do you offer rentals so that I can take a kayak out on my own?

We paddle a stretch of coastline that is simply not suitable for rental kayaks. Safety is paramount in our business, plus we know all the secret spots and love to share our favourite places with you. We care for our wildlife and help you to enjoy the least invasive way of interacting with them.

Do you use single or double kayaks?

Most the time we use double kayaks. We find with two people working together we can go further and see more. Our doubles have space for a child to squeeze between 2 adults.

I'm pregnant, can I still kayak?

We don't recommend kayaking after 15 weeks pregnancy.

Learn to Kayak Lessons

Start your paddling experience safely and comfortably with a 2 hour paddling session from one of Go Sea Kayak’s Professional Paddling Staff.

The Learn to Kayak Lesson is a simple introductory course, where we will focus on establishing the basic concepts that will allow you to be self-sufficient and efficient in your paddling. This is carried out on a local calm waterway, somewhere that you can grasp the basics without obstacles of waves and wind.

We will cover many important aspects of paddling including safety and basic strokes, that will allow you to learn to manoeuvre your kayak (ie keep it going straight!) and allow you to enjoy the process of paddling.

We will be teaching you in 'sit on top' sea kayaks or fiberglass super wide hybrid EPIC ocean skis/kayaks. All safety gear, kayaks and paddles are included in the course. All you need to do is turn up. We will customise your craft to fit your leg length, ensure you are using the right paddle for your size and help you slide into the right safety gear.

Children as young as 12 are welcome, however must be accompanied by an adult. This is a great activity for the whole family to enjoy!
