Salty Dog Sea Kayaking

Based in the spectacular Whitsunday Islands, Salty Dog Sea Kayaking has been running kayaking expeditions since 1996. Its qualified staff have an intimate knowledge of this region and enjoy nothing better than sharing this with friends and guests.

Comprising more than 70 islands, the Whitsunday Island Group is the largest offshore island chain on the east coast of Australia. And as part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, its tropical, clear,warm waters offer some of the most breathtaking and accessible paddling in the world.

Join us for an unforgettable experience on one of our fully-guided trips or extended expeditions. Choose a tour from our schedule or let us customise one to suit you or your group's special requirements. Alternatively, explore the islands at your own pace with a "freedom" rental kayak, camping out under the stars or "living in up" at luxury resort-style accommodation en-route.
