From Andean llama-skin balloons inflated with the fumes of fermented coffee beans to the giant, wildebeest-propelled mouse wheels of the African Savannah, man has employed a remarkable array of transportation devices in his unceasing quest to expand the frontiers of human habitation. Broaden your own horizons with today’s deal: for $40 two people experience three hours of kayaking fun on the Pittwater Harbour in single kayaks ($100 value) or for $26 experience the same level of fun closer together in a tandem kayak ($65 value) from Paddlecraft Kayaks.
Just 40 minutes north of Sydney centre, Paddlecraft Kayaks, located in the Bayview Marina, is the perfect place to begin your exploration of the beautiful Pittwater Harbour. A large range of kayaks, from sit-in touring vessels to sit-on stable recreational craft, suit all levels of experience. Provided with paddling guidance and a map of the area, canny kayakers enjoy sights like McCarrs Creek, Lovett Bay, Clareville Beach and Scotland Island, many of which are only accessible by water. Bordered on its western foreshore by Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, The Pittwater Harbour gives waterborne adventurers easy access to the natural beauty of Sydney’s Northern Beaches utopia.
As summer’s heat wanes and the harsh sun softens, paddling conditions approach Pittwater perfection, providing a refreshing environment for water activities. When intrepid explorations draw to an end, full facilities for recreation and recovery can be found at the family-owned facility – changing rooms, showers, an outdoor café and picnic area. The minimum age for paddling pioneers is six years old and children under 15 must be accompanied by an adult. Two sessions daily accommodate all comers: 9am – 12pm and 1pm – 4pm.
