    Along with our kayak hire in Port Noarlunga, Easy Kayaks also offers guided eco tours of the local reef using see-through kayaks in Port Noarlunga.

    Easy-Kayaks-ExploreTheReef1You will be guided by our aquatics instructor, who will accompany and lead you for a paddle along the Port Noarlunga Reef stopping at key observation points for you to look at the underwater life and other points of interest along the length of the reef through the window on the kayak floor.  We will also provide some bread to feed and entice the local fish to encircle and swim under the glass bottom kayaks on your explore the reef tours, so you can get a closer look at some of the Port Noarlunga Reef’s local inhabitants.

    Explore the reef in Port Noarlunga in see-through, glass bottom kayaksOur guided tours of the Port Noarlunga Reef in glass bottom kayaks are a unique perspective on kayak hire in Adelaide.  Reef tours will be held only once per day on select days in the Summer (dates identified above).  All glass-bottom kayak tours are conducted at low tide providing an opportunity for each paddler and one small passenger to see some of the great underwater sights without having to go below the water.

    Outside of summer months, guided tours of the Port Noarlunga Reef can also be conducted throughout the year; however, tours are always subject to weather conditions and bookings are essential.  During school terms, tours are conducted on weekends only.


    easy-kayaks-explorethereef-1Each of our glass bottom kayaks in Port Noarlunga can hold one adult and one small child sitting opposite them, allowing both to view the underwater reef life through the kayak.  Before setting off on your guided kayak tour, you will be briefed on weather conditions, arm signals in case of assistance needed, any hazards that need highlighting, and points of interest along the Explore The Reef Tour.  Should any paddler tire or show signs of fatigue, their kayak will be tethered to a staff member and towed during the rest of the duration of the tour.
