River cruises, kayak tours & canoe tours
Explore one of the most beautiful river systems on the East Coast by kayak. You will be amazed by the range of wildlife, birds, turtles and fish as you leisurely paddle along the Brunswick River.
If you like the sound of watching the sunrise or full moon rise from a kayak, a gentle afternoon paddle, or even tackling the famous 9km Mullum to Bruns, we can help you there! All of our tours are guided by local nature enthusiasts, who love to point out environmental features along the way. There's plenty of little breaks for historical and Aboriginal story telling, and as it starts to warm up, we like take a break on the riverbank for a swim and a tasty snack.
Our tours are all flexible and always taken at your pace. Anyone can do it, even children as young as 3 are welcome. We can meet you in Brunswick Heads or happily pick you up and drop you off in Byron Bay.
