Cape Trib Paddletrek sea kayaking tours depart every morning around 08:00 and again around 16:00 in the afternoon from Cape Tribulation Beach.
The morning tour gives you more time to explore, while the afternoon tour provides spectacular sunset views not seen by those on land, as the sun in north Queensland sets over the mountains, not over the ocean.

Cape Tribulation Paddletrek has been running sea kayaking tours in Cape Tribulation for over 20 years and is owned and operated by Pete, who will provide you with expert instructions on how to paddle your kayak, and during the tour you he will share his indepth knowledge of local history and wildlife. As a long term resident and experienced scuba diving instructor who has spent years living and working in Cape Tribulation he knows the ocean like the back of his hand.

Animals encountered on these sea kayaking tours include sea turtles, sea eagles, sting rays, sometimes dolphins, dugongs, whales passing by on their north south migration path, and even the occasional cassowary on the beach!

There are several lengths of sea kayaking tours to choose from, and all the kayaking tours include free transfers from and to your accommodation, refreshments, instructions, and all equipment.

Sea kayaking in Cape Tribulation is absolutely the most low impact eco-friendly way to see the coastline of the Daintree National Park, and Cape Trib Paddletrek is proud to have been awarded eco-certification from Eco Tourism Australia.

Never been sea kayaking before ? No worries mate!
Seakayaking is easy, and Pete will show you how.

Cost for the sea kayaking tours are $79.- for the morning trek, and $69.- for the sunset trek.
