A fantastic half day kayak out to Double Island. This is a wonderfull snorkeling adventure! Come with us as we explore the island and the reef!

You will be amazed at the beauty of what Double Island and its surrounding reefs hold.

We start the tour with an introduction to paddling a sea kayak and a quick safety talk. It's not long before we are paddling over the beautiful fringing reefs with fish and rays jumping in front of us and ospreys overhead.

We pull the kayaks up to the beach at Scout's Hat and explore the rock pools for octopus, sea cucumber, crabs, soft corals and a vast array of Great Barrier Reef fish.

We then paddle around the eastern side of the island and explore some great caves - in some cases we will snorkel into these caves! Just around the corner is our resting place on the coral fringed beach. Fresh fruit and juices are laid out on the natural rock table. Everybody can snorkel here as the waters are always calm

Around the western side of the island we stop again to explore the exclusive Double Island resort, this is where the movie stars stay while in FNQ! We again explore the shoreline with blue spotted lagoon rays, mangrove rays, shovel nose sharks and a host of other marine life can be seen.

During the paddle home, turtles and dolphins can quite often pop up in front of us.

*Snorkeling is dependent on conditions during the day (visibility etc)*

Fantastic day

My friend and I had an absolutely fantastic day with Brad. The kayaking around the islands was so beautiful, with the snorkelling the icing on the cake - so many turtles and fish seen! Brad was a brilliant guide, passionately knowledgeable about traditional medicines, Australian culture and plants/fish - no question was too much trouble. We had some tasty treats and the equipment was great. A day to remember! Thanks Brad!

Best kayaking your at Cairns

What a wonderful tour! Brad was so knowledgable about the islands, animals and flora and fauna. We even tried some bush tucker! It was perfectly timed for breaks and the snacks provided were fresh and yum. We were also provided with great reef shoes and snorkelling gear (which you don't get at the other tours!) It was so enjoyable and we would recommend to anyone looking to do a kayak tour in Cairns!

Sea kayak and snorkelling

Could not recommend Brad at Palm Cove Watersports highly enough. Had a fantastic time on the 1/2 day Sea Kayak and Snorkelling. Brad was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. Saw more than I expected and didn't want the trip to end. Great trip ��
