About

Enjoy paddling your sea kayak out through the surf and later ride some of Australia’s most famous Byron Bay waves. Get up close and personal with our friendly bottlenose dolphins and discover how inquisitive they can be. Spot sea turtles as they come up for a breath of air. Marvel at the size of the majestic humpback whales as they migrate through Australia’s beautiful Byron Bay. Pull into one of our pristine beaches for morning or afternoon tea which consists of: Coffee, tea, Milo, bottled water, and Tim-Tams. This should be more than enough to get you back into the action! Cape Byron Kayaks is Byron Bay’s original dolphin kayaking experience established in 1995.

Our guides are kayakers, surfers, self-proclaimed local historians, and excellent watermen. They know Byron Bay well and are the best guides in the business. With that in mind, you can relax and be guided around Byron Bay in our two people, sit-on-top-style sea kayaks, that are designed for ease of operation and stability. No prior experience is necessary. Your safety and enjoyment are our priorities. We supply all safety gear: Lifejackets, helmets, and wetsuits (if necessary), and free pick-up from your accommodation.

Great Value

Enjoyed every minute of the tour today! All the guides were great especially lynchy and blacky who really looked after me well after I told them I had some injuries. They were great fun and so helpful too and was such a beautiful day which also enhanced the whole experience. Saw dolphins from quite a distance away but was so lovely seeing them a number of times. I'd highly recommend doing this. Great value for money!

– Jackie Boyle
Brilliant!

Had a brilliant morning out on the water with supportive, fun, experienced and knowledgeable guides. They obviously love the area and are passionate about the wildlife and environment. Genuinely nice people and made us all, even the most inexperienced amongst us, feel welcome and safe. Had a blast and learned some new kayaking skills too! I would definitely recommend them and can't wait to come back for another tour soon!

Highly Recommended

This was the highlight of our short trip to Byron Bay! We ended up going kayaking on 3 consecutive days as we didn’t see dolphins the first 2 times. Honestly, we were secretly glad we didn’t see them the first few times as it meant we got to keep going back. Alice and the guides are a hoot - they’re all absolutely hilarious, AND give great instruction. It was a bonus that we got to see dolphins on top of the kayaking and great company. 10/10 would highly recommend.
