  • Overview

    Your guide will get you prepared for the day ahead and fitted into your kayaks. We will provide top-notch single or double sea kayaks, high-end paddles, PFD (life vest), and everything else you need for a comfortable morning on the water.

    After a safety briefing and introduction to an efficient paddling technique, we'll launch our sleek kayaks and head out under the Anzac Bridge towards the center of the Harbour.

    We'll experience the built environs and get up close and personal with many of the harbor's natural wonders and marine inhabitants. Paddle to the center of the harbor, where we'll get some photos of you framed by the Harbour Bridge. We'll continue to Goat Island where you'll land in a secret cove before exploring this special place on foot.

    Goat Island is a designated conservation zone and landing is only allowed by a special permit, which is included as part of your tour. After a guided walk around the island, we'll hop back into our kayaks before paddling back via Darling Harbour.

    Matt is extremely knowledgeable and friendly! My mom and I were very happy with our kayaking trip. It's great to experience Sydney from the water! And Goat Island is unique - really cool that Matt has a permit! Highly recommend! And he gets great pictures that he sends right afterwards. What a memory!

    Went out this morning with my stepson and what an experience. We paddled across Black Wattle Bay and under the Anzac Bridge and across the harbour to Lavender Bay and then had a stop at Goat Island to stretch the legs. Then paddled back and took a few stops to enjoy the views along the way. This was truly one of the best experiences I’ve had in a long time and I recommend it to everyone as all levels of paddlers will have a great time. Matt was an excellent guide as he took us through all the safety guidelines and was very knowledgeable about the area and its history. Again, I can’t recommend Paddle Pirates enough. Just do it. You’ll love it.

    I had a great time kayaking with Daniel. He had a ton of helpful tips when kayaking like: don’t push against rocks (damages the paddle) and when the water gets choppy, that’s when you need to paddle extra hard instead of less. Also, if you use your abs to rotate the paddle in the water, you can get a great ab workout, and save energy on your arms/shoulders. Additionally, he had so much historical information to share about Sydney's harbor, and Goat Island, which we stopped at right around the half way point. He also took and sent us for free some great photos with the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbor Bridge in the background which I was so happy to have! Definitely would recommend to anyone looking for a fun way to see the city from a different perspective, and learn a lot from a friendly and jovial guide.

    What a fun experience. Matt was a fantastic guide, he explained the kayaks really clearly and was very knowledgeable about the history of the area. So good to paddle in the harbour and see the city from a different perspective. Highly recommend.
