Here at Go Sea Kayak Byron Bay, we get asked quite often do we do kayak tours out to Julian Rocks situated off Byron Bay. Julian Rocks Nature Reserve is located in the Tasman Sea approximately three kilometres north-east of the township of Byron Bay. The reserve consists of a number of jagged rocky outcrops ranging in height to approximately 15 metres above sea level.
Julian Rocks Nature Reserve is one of the most popular dive locations in Australia. Growing up in Byron Bay, seeing Julian Rocks is one of those constants, just earlier this year I was amazed once more by Julian Rocks seeing waves easily engulf the highest point of the Rocks during one of the massive swell periods that came through the Bay.
We often get asked how hard your kayak tour will be. Generally most people find it a leisurely, mildly challenging adventure. But to make it easier for you, we have a quick list of tips for you:
1) Anyone can do it. That’s true. A “Can Do” attitude is one of the most important things to take on your kayak tour. With this everything is easier anyway.
2) Reach Out: Just like the classic Mo Town hit, when you go to take a stroke in the water reach out toward your toes. A longer stroke will benefit you in many ways but reaching gives you a strong catch to start with.
