Cape Byron Kayaks

Experience all the fun and adventure of a Cape Byron Kayaks guided tour. Feel the exhilaration as you paddle with the dolphins, the turtles and the whales that frequent the enticing waters of Byron Bay. Whether you are a novice or experienced kayaker, your adventure will include paddling our gorgeous Marine Park, the waves, the wilderness and morning or afternoon tea with Tim Tams on a beautiful beach.

Take in some of the best sights the East Coast has to offer. Learn about local history, aboriginal history, the lighthouse, dolphins, whales and turtles. See the Most Easterly Point of the Australian mainland. This is all part of your Byron Bay sea kayak experience with Cape Byron Kayaks.

See and learn these things and more while you paddle in your sea kayak around the famous Byron Bay marine reserve.

  • Enjoy paddling your sea kayak out through the surf and later ride some of Australia’s most famous waves in Byron Bay.
  • Get up close and personal with our friendly Bottlenose Dolphins and discover how inquisitive they can be.
  • Spot Sea Turtles as they come up for a breath of air.
  • Marvel at the size of the majestic Humpback Whales as they migrate through beautiful Byron Bay.
  • Pull into one of our pristine beaches for morning or afternoon tea which consists of: coffee, tea, Milo, water, and Tim Tams. This should be more than enough to get you back into the action!

 

Cape Byron Kayaks is Byron Bay’s original dolphin kayaking experience established in 1995. Our guides are kayakers, surfers, self proclaimed local historians and excellent watermen. They know Byron Bay well and are the best guides in the business.

With that in mind, you can relax and be guided around Byron Bay in our two person, sit-on-top-style sea kayaks, that are designed for ease of operation and stability. No prior experience is necessary. Your safety and enjoyment are our priorities.

We supply all safety gear: lifejackets, helmets, and wetsuits (if necessary) and free pick-up from your accommodation in the Byron CBD.

All you need for your Byron Bay sea kayaking experience is your sense of adventure, your bathers and some sun cream.

Kayak with the dolphins – Dolphin guarantee!

There are estimated to be around 1500 dolphins in the greater Byron Bay area, stretching from Brunswick Heads in the north to Ballina in the south. Byron Bay and its immediate waters are an important habitat for over 300 dolphins. These are called resident dolphins and will live in this area their entire lives. The species most commonly seen on our tours include inshore and offshore bottle nose dolphins, along with some Indo Pacific humpback dolphins and common dolphins.
We see dolphins on 90% of our tours and if you don’t see them you can come again another time for free!

Kayak with the whales

May to November is the season to get up close and personal with whales as they migrate past the most easterly point of the Australian mainland Byron Bay.

Cape Byron Kayaks have been operating sea kayak tours for the past 21 years and every year the anticipation of Whale Season is almost too much to bear as there is no other experience quite as unique and exhilarating as sea kayaking alongside a whale.

During their northern migration, most whales come within 3 km of the NSW coast. During the southern migration Humpback whales bring their calves into the calm waters surrounding Cape Byron to rest and feed. The calves are very inquisitive and playful, they often approach our sea kayak tours with the mother at their side passing just meters from our kayaks.

Barefoot at Broken Head

At the end of a single stretch of sand, your guests look to the north to the most easterly point of Australia – the Byron Bay Lighthouse. There is salt in the air, eucalypts crowded thick over the hills, and waves rolling in from the point.

After the ceremony, the guests walk a minute over the sand dunes through a simple back gate to reveal the minimal Balinese-inspired masterpiece that is Barefoot at Broken Head.

The huge central living pavilion opens up through accordion doors to the tropical garden and huge decks in which are set four other buildings, where the families and couples that are staying can have perfect privacy when they desire, and huge common areas when they would like to commune.

There are five luxury bedrooms and a separate kitchen and dining area overlooking the pools where you can watch the kids frolic in the 30cm deep reflection pool or dive deep into the 20m lap pool, both set in golden sandstone.

In the days before and after your reception have relatives or friends to stay, ride the bikes along the beach at low tide, or drive 10 minutes into town to enjoy Byron’s restaurants. With the sound of the sea from your bed and a world-class point break a minute from your room – this is the ultimate Australian beach house.

Co-ordinators love weddings at Barefoot at Broken Head because it’s all here – no need to organise a professional kitchen, bathrooms, electricity, decorations, cool room, marquees, public liability insurance, gate attendant, rubbish removal or indoor/outdoor ceremony options. All this is included in the reception fee.
