Kayak tours

Canoe the Coorong showcases one of South Australia’s best-kept secrets.

Located just 85 km south of Adelaide is the internationally recognised Coorong Wetlands.

Stretching more than 140 kilometres, the Coorong National Park protects a string of spectacular saltwater lagoons which are sheltered from the Southern Ocean by the sweeping, rolling sand dunes of the Young Husband Peninsula.

The best way to explore these waterways is by kayak.

Kayaking is the most enjoyable and sustainable way to see the Coorong, allowing an intimate experience with the wildlife of the Coorong without impacting the natural ecology.
