Just an hour from Sydney is Pittwater's peaceful world of sandy inlets, mangrove thickets and secluded beaches — yours to discover on these guided tours by Paddlecraft.

From Paddlecraft's marina, climb into one of their kayaks and paddle off to explore the western foreshore of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. Together with your experienced guide, glide past secret spots accessible only by kayak: sandy inlets, striking rocky cliffs and beautiful stands of gum trees.

After circling Scotland Island, explore peaceful mangroves on Salvation Creek, then visit secluded Lovett Bay for a tasty picnic-style morning tea of fresh fruit and pastries.

These inviting waters are the perfect spot to take a cool dip. If you feel like stretching your legs, put on your shoes for a short ramble through gum trees to a hidden rainforest waterfall.

Your knowledgeable guide will happily answer all your questions about the fascinating plants and animals that call this place home. After a blissful time on the water, make the return paddle and head home with unforgettable memories.

Paddlecraft is a licensed commercial tour operator with a Parks Eco Pass.
