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.

Great experience
Jan 2021 • Family
The team at Cape Byron Kayaks are fantastic and make the whole experience fantastic. We got to see a couple of leopard sharks, but unfortunately no dolphins. However we have been offered a free tour again to see the dolphins, which is awesome.

Definitely a worthwhile family activity.

Wonderful family experience
Dec 2020 • Family
My husband and two girls loved our experience. The team was great and very professional and assisted us to cope with young children in the ocean. We saw 4 different pods of dolphins and the tiniest baby dolphin I’ve ever seen. Definitely something you have to do in Byron Bay.

Dolphins, turtles & more
Sep 2020 • Couples
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, Andrew and Charlo (sorry if this isn’t spelt right), for being pros, super nice and helpful. The Tim Tams are a great sugar touch after a big arm workout. You’d feel safe with these guys. Would go again!

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!

What a great day out with the family! The guides took amazing care of our 8 and 4 year old. They took us straight to pods of dolphins and we even managed to spot some whales within reach! Oh, and the sea turtles and fighter jet we're an added bonus.

Andy, our guide was super informative and friendly. It is a bit of a workout with the paddling, but in my opinion, it’s totally worth it!
