We had a mixed group on this paddle with people from all over the world. It was a typical Winter’s day with blue skies and little wind. We paddled across Pittwater and took the shorter bush walk from Resolute Bay up to the top of 3rd Head. We checked out the Aboriginal Cave on the way up, with hand prints are believed to be up to 2000 years old. Everyone had a great time and got along well together.
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.
Pittwater, is truly one of Sydney’s absolute gems in terms of natural beauty all year round. In Summer it turns a beautiful turquoise blue. In Winter it ranges from dark to light green. It has so many little secluded beaches that are clean, calm and have no crowds. It is surrounded on the West by Ku Ring Gai Chase National Park, with steep rocky cliffs and Australian Gum Trees.
We spent a magical day paddling on Pittwater in the middle of Winter and then a couple of the clients did a bit of rock climbing off one of the ledges.
A fun day out.
These 2 friends and a couple from America drove up the peninsular to Palm Beach thinking it would be a rainy kayak and bush walk (it does add a beautiful mystique to the area in these conditions). As we unpacked the kayaks and got into our PFD’s we were greeted with a beautiful double rainbow. It ended up being a lovely tour and both waterfalls were also running lightly after the rain.
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.
This lovely family came for a sunrise paddle and were lucky enough to have a wallaby come right up and say hello no more than 10 feet away. It was a great way to start the day. The young girl had an assignment due on the history of Pittwater, so some of the information she learnt along the way she found useful.
I took my beautiful girlfriend Sasha, a mate I’ve known since school, Brendo and his lovely English wife Ruth, for a day out on Pittwater. We paddled across to Great Mackerel Beach and worked our way up to a breath taking view where we enjoyed a picnic looking out over Pittwater, Barrenjoey and Palm Beach.
We then hiked further into Ku Ring Gai Chase National Park to look at the Aboriginal Engravings which are some of the best I’ve seen!!
On the paddle back we were treated to a thrilling up close start of a yacht race.
A truly remarkable way to spend time with loved ones.
