Begin your 3-hour adventure with a Great Beach Drive in the Great Sandy National Park. You’ll head to the spectacular Double Island Point to enjoy scenic views of Fraser Island and the colored sands of Rainbow Beach.

Head out on a relaxed kayaking tour around the headland as you admire the beauty of the natural surroundings and take in the Double Island Point Lighthouse from a unique perspective.

Bottlenose dolphin pods are often seen in this area, feeding on large schools of fish. They’re usually as curious about you as you are about them, so be prepared for an experience of a lifetime!

Awesome experience, instructors were great and friendly. Although no dolphens were seen om the day there were plenty of other animals seen

Unfortunately we saw no dolphins, nor turtles that day because the jet-sky invited the place and scared away the animals. If not the water is pristine clear. Beautiful place Our guides were nice and very concern for our safety

This was tough going - and we are relatively fit!

Limited explanation of technique - group was mixed in terms of those who had kayaked before and those who had not. All were fairly fit though. No explanation of technique when returning to beach which meant a number over turned in the waves - two at a fair distance from the beach. One young girl lost her glasses and was very upset - not sunglasses but glasses for poor eye sight. Partial sighting of one whale about 500 metres away. Cant blame the tour people for lack of wildlife - such is the nature of wildlife. But disappointing never the less.
