Kayak Ballina offers two types of scheduled tours as well as tailor-made unscheduled tours of Ballina and its beautiful waterways. Our scheduled tours are detailed below. If you would like to go for an unscheduled tour, please get in touch using the details on our Contact us page and we will put together an experience to meet your requirements. All tours require a minimum of 4 paddlers to run.
No experience is necessary on any Kayak Ballina tours as a basic skills lesson from one of our Australian Canoeing certified instructors is always included. We also supply lifejackets, paddles, and top quality double sit inside kayaks with rudders so you can cruise through the day with maximum comfort.
Local guides who live in the area and know it better than most provide commentary on Ballina’s richly diverse flora and fauna, as well as information about the town’s history and cultural heritage.
All of our scheduled tours are on the water for approximately 3.5 hours and cost just $70 per person.
Bookings are essential. Book your adventure today.

Every second Saturday. 8am start during NSW Daylight Saving Time. 9am start for the rest of the year.
Summer Sunset tour
We run our Summer Sunset tours every Wednesday evening during NSW Daylight Saving Time. Our part of the Richmond River has the perfect east/west orientation required to watch the sun set over the water and wonder at the kaleidoscope of reflections that it creates.
