Kayaking Tours Rivers, Lakes and Ocean, South Coast NSW
The Total Eco Adventures tours are planned for great kayaking experiences, extending from the Eurobodalla Shire to the Shoalhaven Region. Amongst the most beautiful scenery our easy flatwater paddles include the Tomaga River, Congo Creek, Tuross and Durras Lake systems, Lake Conjola and the breath taking Narrawallee Inlet at Ulladulla. Our exciting sea kayaking adventures operate in the Broulee Bay exploring Mossy Point, Tomakin, Barlings Beach, Burrewarra Point with lighthouse and Broulee Island or in Batemans Bay exploring Snapper Island, Square Head and the distant Tollgate Islands.
Firstly with all our tours we meet clients at our starting point or load up into the Toyota 4WD Troop Carrier and with kayak trailer in tow and head off to our set in point. We always have the tour planned for the easiest paddling so the tide and wind are always in our favour.
After getting on our life jackets (PFD) and choosing one of our Australis double or single sit on top kayaks, our guides demonstrate the correct paddling techniques, how to use the river or ocean safely including navigation rules and most importantly how to handle the kayak once on the water.
Tours are planned in the mornings for the best weather conditions, I also believe the best time for kayaking is the early morning because at that time of day you can see so much more, when the day is clear and windless and the bird life and aquatic creatures are all out at play.
On all tours our guide endeavors to give the paddler the maximum enjoyment with these peaceful tours along the most pristine waterways and coastal bays on the NSW South Coast within the Ulladulla, Batemans Bay and Moruya region. So much can be seen from the water from the Great Dividing Range in the back ground to the Tasman Sea and everything in between. Kayaking has been labeled as bushwalking on water and with the different perspective from the water it is great for appreciating the natural beauty that surrounds you.
