PFD –> Paddle –> Spraydeck –> Safety briefing –> Adrenaline –> Launch!

Dipping a paddle in a lake, estuary or the ocean is a magic way to see parts of Australia from a different perspective.

Our double sea kayaks are stable, comfortable and easy to operate and have the capacity to carry camping gear/equipment for trips of up to four days duration. All safety gear is provided and most participants are amazed at how effortless paddling can be when using good technique!

The activities of fishing, bird-watching and camping can also be integrated with Sea Kayaking and we have access to several secluded locations to focus on these pursuits!

Out and About Adventures is also a National Training Provider (NTP) for Australian Canoeing Guide/Instructor qualifications and can provide training and assessment in canoe, kayak and sea kayaking activities upon request.
