Overview

Join us in our unique Pedal Powered Kayaks and Paddle Boards as we go exploring the Shoalwater Marine Park just 40 minutes south of Perth. Our kayaks our powered by your legs which means your hands are free to take photos. On this tour we visit two islands close to shore, the first one is home to the playful Australian Sea Lion and the second one is home to approximately 1200 Little Fairy Penguins, the largest population of these birds in Western Australia. The islands are also home to numerous species of birds including the very impressive Sea Eagle or Osprey.Picnic lunch is provided at the end of the tour.

Know More about this tour

Your guide will pick you up from your accommodation in the city in our air conditioned mini bus and then we have a 40 minute journey south down the freeway to the Shoalwater Bay region.

Once the kayaks and paddle boards are unloaded and set up on the beach your guide will give you instructions on how to use the kayaks and paddle boards as well as a safety briefing. You will get the opportunity to practice in your kayak or paddle board close to shore before we head across to Seal Island. 

On the way across to Seal Island we may see some dolphins if we are lucky, sometimes they like to follow us to see where we are going. Often when we arrive at the island the seals are lying on the beach and if we are lucky some of the younger ones will come out to say hello. They seem to really like the paddle boards and you can see a video of them playing with us on our website.

We then leave Seal Island to head south to Penguin island passing a few small islands on the way. It doesn't take very long to get there and you will see plenty of bird life along the way as the islands are home to many species of birds including Pelicans, Cormorants, Turns and Sea Eagles.

At Penguin Island, we beach the kayaks and head to the Discovery Centre where you can see the penguins being fed and learn about their life cycle. There will also be an opportunity to walk along the boardwalks to explore the island, keeping an eye out for nesting penguins and the many different species of birds that call the island home. We have a snack for morning tea in the shaded picnic area on the island and there is also an opportunity to go for a swim while we are here.

After exploring the island, it's time to head back to the mainland where we will load the kayaks back on to the trailer before heading to the Rockingham foreshore to have a barbeque lunch and a glass of wine from the Margaret River Region. Then it's time to drop you back to your accommodation.
