It was one of the coldest mornings this winter when I met Malini and Adam at 6am for a sunrise paddle. There was a howling wind and it was 6 degrees. These two were still keen, so we set off and despite the cold weather we still had a great time. A nice hot coffee at the end of the paddle has never tasted so good.
This was an absolute postcard of a day and we had a few different groups who combined and we enjoyed a really fun day together. There were a couple of girls who had decided to embark on a year of adventure and were doing all sorts of exciting things like skydiving, going on road trips, bungee jumping and going for a paddle with Pittwater Kayak Tours was one on the bucket list.
My flat mate Hannah came along and loved it. A few well earned beers in the sun at the Collaroy Hotel afterwards went down very well.
These three girls organised to have a catch up and spend some quality time together in a beautiful part of the world. They enjoyed the exercise and full body workout, upper body while paddling and lower body during the bush walk. Afterwards they went and enjoyed lunch together at one of the numerous restaurants on the Northern Beaches.
Jarrod and Stef came along for a romantic kayak together on Valentine’s Day. After bush walking in Ku-Ring-Gai National Park, swimming at Resolute Bay and then paddling back to Pittwater Park. I left them with a bottle of wine and a cheese platter to enjoy. Nice work Jarrod, definitely earned you some brownie points with Stef.
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.
Jack celebrated his 10th birthday with Pittwater Kayak Tours. He and 14 of his good friends, along with 5 of the dads came along for a paddle. We paddles across Pittwater to Great Mackerel Beach where the kids had a swim before competing in an iron man race and a few games on the beach. Everyone enjoyed a piece of fruit and a muesli cookie (and of course a few lollies). On the way back I gave a few of the kids a tow in my inflatable dinghy which they loved.
A good time was had by all. Happy Birthday Jack.
When Chennel 7’s hit TV program Sydney Weekender approached me to be filmed I jumped at the chance. Mike Whitney and his professional team came along and filmed a sunrise tour with Pittwater Kayak Tours. Its was a beautiful morning as we paddled across Pittwater and then hiked up to Third Head. We admired the stunning views, enjoyed out light snack and then went to see the Aboriginal Cave with hand prints believed to be up to 2000 years old.
When we returned to the beach, everyone had a swim in the cool and calm refreshing water of Resolute Bay. no one could believe how clear the water was.
