Accessible Tours

Navigate Expeditions is committed to providing nature-based accessible tours that are accessible to all people with needs. We take into account access needs including mobility, vision, hearing and cognitive dimensions of access to function independently and with equity and dignity.  

We recognise accessibility is an important factor when deciding on suitable activities, we bear this in mind and will provide accessibility information with each experience that we offer. Guests are most welcome to contact us to discuss their accessibility needs. 

We had a wonderful Kayak / paddle along the Bermagui River. Our guide David was friendly, knowledgeable and great with our two kids (one with disability) Morning tea and home made chocolate brownies were delicious and they even catered for GF /DF! The length was perfect and we loved learning about local wildlife. Would happily recommend.” Tamara Oppen Google Review April 2023
