Exploring Canaipa Point, Russell Island from the water by kayak

Experience the beautiful Southern Moreton Bay Islands from the water. These guided tours will highlight the history of the islands, and our knowledgeable Conservation Team will introduce you to some of the island’s unique flora and fauna. We are fortunate to have an abundance of birds and marine species including dugong, dolphins, and several species of sea turtle around our islands, and you never know what you might see. You will paddle through precious foreshore ecosystems, as well as over seagrass beds and sand bars.

Our guides will pick you up from and return you to the passenger ferry terminal on the island of your tour, and you will be driven to our launch point in our minibus. Locations and time on the water will vary dependent on tides, winds and other weather conditions, but expect to be on the water for up to two hours.

Participants will need a medium level of fitness to participate, but no experience is necessary. We also endeavour to make each of our tour experiences accessible, so please talk to our staff about your or your group’s needs.
