Adelaide kayaking

Thursday, May 29, 2008
Blue Water Sea Kayaking in Adelaide conducts sea kayaking adventures that give paddlers personal encounters with dolphins and takes them in search of shipwrecks in the Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary — all, unbelievably, just 15 minutes from the CBD.

You will explore mysterious sea caves and be greeted by friendly sea lions near Rapid Bay Sea Caves, and experience Coorong National Park's wilderness.

There's plenty on offer for first-time kayakers, novices and experienced paddlers.

Spectacular locations close to Adelaide offer fun, safe and adventurous escapes into natural environments. Eco-adventures are suitable for all ages and levels of fitness. You just need good general health and a sense of adventure.

Blue Water Sea Kayaking uses two- and three-person sea kayaks, which are easy to paddle, have rudders for steering and are stable and comfortable. Unlike some tippee craft, where all energy is used trying to stay upright and moving, their kayaks are state-of-the-art, chosen so your experience is enjoyable, not exhausting!

The kayaks are ideal for family groups. Children can sit in the front while an adult skippers the craft. Children as young as four can join in with the latest family-designed kayaks. These three-seaters, for two adults and a young child, are stable and comfortable and come with high-quality buoyancy vests.

Adventures are lead by guides who are accredited with Australian Canoeing Inc, the peak body for canoeing instruction and training in Australia. They carry first-aid kits and are trained in emergency response.


Adelaide, capital of South Australia.
