The Tollgate Islands

May 16, 2023 @ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm

If you have a passion for nature and adventure, then this paddle to a seldom visited island chain is for you! The islands are a fascinating destination with many unique cliffs, grottos, overhung ledges, making the paddle out and a circumnavigation worth the effort. The islands are located in exposed waters approximately 1 hour paddling time from land, home to many seabirds, thriving due to the minimal disturbance. Little penguins, oyster catchers, petrels, birds of prey and more make their home among the pebble beaches, grasslands and cliff edges.

We like to advise that this journey is only suitable for people who have kayaked previously, no kids or non swimmers. We will choose a departure point, either Maloneys Beach or Wimbie beach (the two closest mainland options) to start the journey.

There is the very real possibility of seeing migrating whales up close on your tour! A truly exhilarating experience.

Please be aware this is an open water experience and is conditions depending.
