Investigate the magnificent limestone formations of the Blackwall Reach cliffs that tower 8 metres above us as we paddle slowly from East Fremantle into Bicton Bay and then along the cliff face through crystal clear waters.
Learn a little about the first Australians who lived in the area (Djoondalup or Point Walter) and the first explorers from European nations that settled the Swan River Colony.
We paddle along the riverbanks through the Bicton Bay which is full of interesting boats and houses that over look the river. We spend time below the cliffs on our kayaks enjoying the natural beauty before paddling back to our launch spot.
We pack away the kayaks and then we buy you a coffee, tea or cool drink as we sit and enjoy the peaceful setting at the East Fremantle Yacht Club.
This tour is designed for those who may not have paddled before but can do light exercise for a period of 60 minutes. We provide you a safety briefing and show you how to paddle these very stable sit-on top kayaks. No paddle experience is needed and we provide you a life jacket and dry bag for your camera etc.
