What To Expect

Make your own way to the meeting point near Batemans Bay to begin your tour.

Start by getting outfitted in the provided flotation device and kayak, then receive paddling instruction and a safety briefing.

When ready, set out with your guide on the calm waters within the Batemans Marine Park Sanctuary Zones, which encompasses an important mangrove and tidal sand flat system. The sand flats, seagrass beds, and mangroves protects and provides key breeding grounds for a variety of species, including stingrays, blue swimmer crabs, octopus, fiddler rays and an array of fish.

The region is also significant for the Yuin, the Aboriginal people that have lived there for more than 12,000 years. The name for nearby Cullendulla Creek comes from the Aboriginal that translates to 'place of food.'

Your guide shares informative commentary about the history and wildlife of the area throughout the tour. From your glass-bottom kayak, you can watch marine animals that swim near you, and access parts of the marine park that are only accessible by boat.

Your guide returns you to the starting point to end your tour along with complimentary snacks.

Bad photos but great tour. We did glad bottom tour which was a good kayaking experience at Bateman Bay. Our guide explained kayaking basics, showed us a thing or two about the area and we had fun time. Will surely recommend it. And do a longer tour next time (if I come back to Australia and this region again). They said they’ll take complementary photos 😳🙄😬 please!!

Batemans Bay Must Do Activity
Ivy_H, Jan 2024
My hubby & I joined the 2 hours kayaking session on the morning of 1/1/24. We had 15 people in our group with participants ages from around 10 to an elderly woman. As my hubby & I aren’t active people nor talented in aquatic sports I worried that we may loose control of the kayak by flipping over in the water. This activity turned out to be so much fun. Above all, we enjoyed learning about the nature, how we should take part in protecting it and the aboriginal culture. Our instructors are very really fantastic, fun, very well experienced and were very informative and friendly. They explained to us the necessary techniques and key skills of kayaking as well as rules of engagement prior to going into the water. Safety was an important area our instructor covered in detail and life jackets were provided to all participants. This activity was leisurely, enjoyable, techniques was easy to execute to learn and was certain not a high impact sport; suitable for kids & older people alike. We had water & land exploration during this activity. We had sighted stingrays, oysters, mullet fishes, cockles, abalones, small crabs and even tasted the Aboriginal food picked from the beach.

Great family fun

A great way to spend a morning (or arvo). Went with my 6 year old boy who had a blast. We went and caught a few small waves and also went against a few which was fun. It was looking like we wouldn't see any creatures, but that's the way it goes. But all of a sudden found 1,000s of crabs crawling across the sand bar. The kids could pick them up and didn't want to leave. A great tour.
Response from Host, May 2023
Thanks Craig! Mother Nature sometimes keeps here secrets hidden, we are so glad that the crabs came out for you! Does not matter how old you are, we all love soldier crabs!
Lots of fun for families

My family and I had a great time. Saw a shovelnose shark, some smaller stingrays and an eagle ray. Would highly recommend the tour.
A fun adventure for the whole family!
Clare_R, Oct 2022
Our family of five had an absolute ball on this tour. Josh made the whole experience relaxing and fun, and was so encouraging to our kids in particular as they tried things outside of their comfort zone! We never felt rushed, and Josh's knowledge of the area and ability to spot things to point out to us was exceptional. You won't regret this experience for a second.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Thanks Clare, we'd love to see you and your family on our pizza paddle or our new snorkel discovery experience!
Enjoyable kayaking trip
Margaret_J, Apr 2022
