    What to Expect
    After meeting your guide at the designated location in Noosa Heads or Noosaville, settle into your comfortable 4-wheel drive vehicle for the scenic drive to Teewah Beach via the Noosa North Shore ferry.

    When your vehicle disembarks from the ferry, prepare for a thrilling ride along Great Beach Drive. Take in views of the coast and the colorful sandstone cliffs along the way.

    Arrive at the pristine paradise of Double Island Point, a gorgeous headland with a variety of marine life. There, your guide provides kayaking equipment and instruction before you set out on a guided kayak tour. Keep an eye out for bottlenose dolphins, migrating whales (seasonal), turtles, rays, migrating birds, and soldier crabs. From the water, you also get a great perspective on Double Island Point Lighthouse.

    Relax on the return trip along Great Beach Drive to Noosa.

    Had a decent experience. Did the “Kayak with Dolphins” and Beach drive tour. They advertise it as if you’ll be kayaking right up next to the dolphins but that was definitely not the case. We kayaked from the beach against the current, which was arduous and took a while. Once we

    Hi Amy, thanks for the feedback and joining us on tour. Glad you got to see dolphins on your trip :) As we hope you can appreciate we are paddling in the ocean in a Marine Park which is a wild environment and dolphins in the area are wild and swim and behave differently from day to day. Some days close to shore and the kayaks and other days out a bit more and busy feeding. Our guides are experts in the area and for spotting dolphins and do their best for you. On rare occasions dolphins are too far out to see however the location is special for many other marine life such as turtles, rays, whales, sea birds and fish and a spectacular National Park location we get to along the beach by 4X4. Most of the time we see dolphins here as it is a very remote Marine Park with plenty of fish for the dolphins to feed on. I am sorry you felt the paddling was a bit harder than you anticipated as the guides spotted the dolphins a little further out and guided the group however constant monitoring was in place to ensure you were always well within your ability. Most of our participants are beginners that have never kayaked before and as i mentioned some days close to shore for the marine life other times further out. There is even an option to paddle in early and relax on the beach if you like. The only tour we are aware of you will be 100% guaranteed to see dolphins up close would be in captivity which we do not support. Thanks again for the feedback and happy travels :)

    We loved every minute of our day with Vince (I think it was Vince?) and Lukey. The journey brought many unique and memorable moments, like Vince rescuing a sea snake from the sand, stoping to watch an Osprey swoop down and catch a poor unsuspecting migratory bird lying on the
