What you need to know

Discover the magical wonders of the Great Barrier Reef on a half-day kayak turtle tour from Palm Cove to Double Island with special appearances from curious native turtles. If you’re looking to get out on the water and get up close to the creatures of the Great Barrier Reef then a Cairns kayak tour is a great option.

The journey begins in a picturesque spot at the southern end of Palm Cove where friendly guides will get you set up in preparation for your kayaking adventure. The first stop of the tour is a famous turtle spot where green and hawksbill turtles can be seen basking in the ocean.

From here, paddle to the south side of the island to explore the mangroves where rays and shovel nosed sharks feed in the shallows. Next, check out the limestone cave to view small stalactites suspended from the roof. The final stop is a secluded beach where you can enjoy a refreshing swim in the ocean. The Cairns kayaking tour winds down with a gentle paddle back to Palm Cove.


Environmental Management Charge is payable when arriving at the tour $7.00 per person.
