Highlights
  • Kayak alongside bottlenose dolphins in Byron Bay—no experience required
  • Choose either a morning or afternoon tour, to suit your schedule
  • Includes all gear (including wetsuits upon request), tea, and light snacks
  • Dolphin sightings guaranteed—if you miss them, do the tour again for free
What to Expect
After meeting your guide in Byron Bay, get outfitted with a paddle, safety vest, and a two-person sea kayak that’s designed for ease and stability. Then, following your guide, head out into Cape Byron Marine Park. As you paddle, see the historic Cape Byron Light—Australia’s most powerful lighthouse—and learn about the area’s cultural and Aboriginal history from your guide. Navigate toward the local pod of more than 300 dolphins that inhabit the area, and enjoy an amazingly up-close experience with these smart, playful marine mammals in their natural habitat. Spot other marine life such as sea turtles and migrating humpback whales (which appear from May to November) as well. Before returning to Byron Bay, stop at a lovely beach for tea with light snacks. Note that on the off-chance that you don’t encounter any dolphins, you can take the tour again on another day free of charge.

Best part was definitely when a huge wave capsized all of us and we fell into the water next to a pod of dolphins. I didn’t want to get back into the kayak to be honest! I couldn’t catch everything on camera, but that’s not the point. We also saw turtles. Thanks to the guides,

Thanks for taking the time to review us! Definitely a freak accident that you got tipped over by a wave and were in the water close to the Dolphins - we always abide by the National Parks and Wildlife regulations in terms of keeping our distance from our beautiful wild animals. The last thing we want to do is disturb them in their natural habitat! So glad you enjoyed your encounter and we would love to see you again! Just be prepared to laugh at the same bad jokes!
