On arrival at Shoalwater Marine Park (a beautiful bay with several limestone islands), our AW Host will meet you and conduct intro's prior to the Kayaking Guide providing the group with a briefing at 9.00AM.

 

After buddying up and familiarising ourselves with the equipment, it's time to head off with the first section of the paddle out to Seal Island, a distance of approximately 1km, where we check out the Australian Sea Lions.  Under the conditions usually experienced (light easterly breeze), this paddle generally takes about 15 minutes.

Next up we paddle approximately 2kms (about a 30 minute paddle) to Penguin Island where we land and have a yummy picnic lunch, followed by a visit to the Penguin Centre where some Penguins are fed.  After this you're welcome to fall asleep under a tree or in the sun, snorkel, swim, do some more kayaking, or go exploring the coast and caves of the island, whatever you wish.


There is an option to go on a nature walk around the island with the Guide to discover the many and varied shellfish, starfish, crabs, sea birds (including a Pelican Colony), lizards, dolphins and some great views of the bay.  At around 2:30pm we muster for the return to Australia, often rafting the boats up and sailing back if the winds are right. This is a distance of approximately 2.5 kilometres.  After packing the gear away and changing into dry clothes (there is a toilet block at the start/finish point) we say our goodbyes and return home feeling invigorated and relaxed after a great day out on the water!

Another fantastic AW activity. Such fun to explore an area of the Swan River that is not well known or easily accessed and the ‘scrambling’ over a range of obstacles just added to the enjoyment and the challenge. Leonie, from Water Wanderers Wanderers, excelled herself with our picnic lunch and her enthusiasm for our river adventure.
