Cullendulla Nature Reserve showcases significant Aboriginal history and incredible marine life in close proximity to the town of Batemans Bay, best viewed on a Glass Bottom Kayak Tour, an Ecotourism Experience suitable for everyone!
Often referred to as a “Wildlife adventure” on this tour your main aim is to find as much wildlife as possible as we float over tidal sand flats and enter an age old mangrove system protected within the Batemans Marine Park Sanctuary Zones (the highest level of protection).
Innovative perspex bottom kayaks have allowed us to design an experience viewing the intricate underwater world and search for stingrays, blue swimmer crabs, schools of fish, octopus, fidler rays and much more.
This significant area of sand flat, sea grass beds and mangrove system harbours a vast amount of species. The guided kayak tour gives insight into their life and breeding cycles.
The area also has significant cultural heritage for the first Australians, with over 12,000 years of occupation by Yuin people. The word “Cullendulla” is a Dhurga word, the language spoken by the indigenous people and translates to “Place of Food” in english. The tour will show you why and how the Indigenous people made this their home.
The Glass Bottom Kayak Tour uses capable sit on top kayaks to visit unique, remote and amazing locations. It is an extremely eco friendly way to visit an area with low impact, no noise, long life of the craft and powered by you! A very Carbon friendly activity! By choosing this Ecotourism Experience you are making a conscious decision to reduce impact by promoting sustainable travel that benefits local communities, culture, and heritage and ultimately the environment.
