Freycinet National Park, Tasmania - Sea Kayak Adventure
Discover the magnificent Freycinet National Park on a relaxed sea
kayaking adventure. Exploring this coastline by sea is a unique experience.
Paddle over crystal clear waters, dwarfed by spectacular pink granite peaks,
discovering pristine beaches and secluded bays. Previous paddling experience
is not essential. You paddle for 3-4 hours each day, allowing plenty of time
to explore the coastal wilderness, climb one of the surrounding peaks for
fantastic views, go snorkeling in the crystal clear waters or simply relax
on the beach.
Great food is an essential part of your holiday experience and meals are
freshly prepared with Tasmanian produce in a unique wilderness setting. All
meals, from lunch day 1 to lunch on the final day, are fully catered. The
wilderness camps provide basic, simple and comfortable accommodation whilst
minimising the impact on the environment. The average daily temperature
during summer is 24 degrees (16 degrees in winter). The air in Tasmania is
fresh and clear and the sun can be harsh, so pack your sunscreen.
As the tour is operated in the outdoors, adverse weather conditions, in
particular wind and sea breeze, may affect some adventures. Trips may
experience day/s where paddling is not possible due to weather conditions.
