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.
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.
This group of teachers get up each Friday morning during the school term and come for a paddle. It’s a really relaxed atmosphere. we try to mix it up, sometime we walk up to one of the views to watch the sunrise, other times we take our goggles and go for a swim. Were always back by 7.40am and go for a coffee before work. a great way to start the day.
This local family from Newport on Sydney’s Northern Beaches came for a paddle with Pittwater Kayak Tours and had an absolute blast. With kids Lani, Tyler and Jasmine aged 10, 13 and 14 and mum Nikki they explored parts of Pittwater that they had never been to before even though they’d lived here their whole life. They bush walked through Ku Ring Gai Chase National Park to Third Head and were amazed at the Aboriginal cave with hundreds of Aboriginal hand prints which experts believe to be up to 2000 years old. They then marveled at the spectacular panoramic views over Pittwater, Palm Beach and Barrenjoey Headland. They enjoyed some fresh fruit which mum approved of and then had a quick swim to cool off down in the crystal clear waters of Resolute Bay.
Pittwater Kayak Tours operating on the Northern Beaches of Sydney is definitely on the list of things to do no matter what age you are. I took the second half of my class out for a paddle across beautiful Pittwater and then a bush walk through Ku Ring Gai Chase National Park up to West Head where the class enjoyed their fresh fruit, muesli cookies and bottles of water while looking out at the amazing views over Palm Beach, Barrenjoey Headland, Broken Bay and Lion Island.
Pittwater Kayak Tours is now catering for Birthday Parties with a difference. Get your child outdoors with a bunch of friends for a healthy and active birthday party that they’re sure to remember. A standard party will include kayaking, bush walking, games on the beach and in the water, swimming and a light snack. Lolly bags can also be provided.
Parties can be tailored to suit individual needs. Some parental supervison is required which will depend on group numbers and children’s ages. All safety equipment is supplied and meets all industry and Australian standards.
I have over 12 years experience working with children and I’m a qualified PE and Primary School teacher.
Monday to Friday I’m a school teacher so I rewarded my class by taking them out for a paddle with Pittwater Kayak Tours. I took half the class out yesterday with their parents and we were blessed with an absolute postcard of a day. The sun was shining, there was just a puff of wind and it was really nice to share this experience outside of the school grounds.
The kids were all little legends and smashed the paddle and the bush walk.
The other half of the class come out tomorrow, although I don’t think the weather is looking quite as nice.
