Joerg and his wife still made it down to Palm Beach for the sunrise tour despite sleeping through their alarm. It was a beautiful morning for a paddle. Then they were off to enjoy the rest of the day enjoying all that the surrounding areas of Pittwater has to offer. Excellent pubs, restaurants, cafes and of course the numerous beautiful beaches.
Sasha organised a group of her friends who live in and around Sydney to get together for a catch up. They enjoyed a paddle on Pittwater (although there was a bit of healthy competition between the blokes, and some of the girls). After the paddle they sat on the grass and enjoyed wine and a cheese platter as the sun set over beautiful Pittwater.
Chris and Anthony who are both keen paddlers brought their mum along for a paddle with Pittwater Kayak Tours. She is 74 years old and or should I say 74 years young. Jo was fit a s a fiddle and made the whole experience look easy. She is not PKT’s oldest participant and an absolute inspiration. She truly showed that age is just a number.
This Newport family from Sydney’s Northern Beaches enjoyed a family day out with Pittwater Kayak Tours. The swell was too large this day so we couldn’t land at Resolute Bay so instead landed at Great Mackerel Beach and then walked around to Resolute Bay and up to 3rd Head. It was a hot day and the kids aged 7, 9 and 12 would have kept swimming in the crystal clear water all day if they were allowed.
Tammy and Lainie are two local girls who grew up in Avalon and have spent the majority of their lives around the Northern Beaches. I am pleased to say that on out tour I was able to take them to two new spots that neither of them had been to before. It was a lot of fun hanging out with these two for the day.
This group of friends Sarah, Phil and Dave brought their cousin Andrea from Portugal out for a paddle on the Northern Beaches to show her some truly beautiful Australian Nature. They started the day kayaking on Pittwater and bush walking in Ku Ring Gai National Park and then were headed into the city to have dinner on a Tall ship on Sydney Harbour. An excellent way to spend a day and to show around a guest from overseas.
Manuela is a Northern Beaches local who was looking for something a bit different. She came along for 2 Sunrise Tours, she liked the first one so much. We were really luck and saw loads of local wildlife including fairy penguins and swamp wallabies. On our first tour we hiked up to 3rd Head and admired the Aboriginal Cave and the views. For the 2nd tour we landed at Great Mackerel Beach and hiked up to some amazing views over Pittwater, Barrenjoey and Palm Beach. We then pushed further inland to have a look at the Aboriginal engravings. Manuela is a keen photographer and took some great photos.
