Bega River Kayak Tour near Merimbula and Tathra

A kayak tour through different eco systems from the forest of reeds in the lagoon to the sand spits, bush and farm land of the Bega River. We’ll be going at a pace to suit the group’s experience level and have time to really enjoy the natural habitat with guests often spotting egrets fishing by the shallow waters, azure kingfishers perched on the ends of branches and possibly white bellied sea eagles flying above. There really is so much to see and experience along this beautiful lagoon and river system. Part way along we’ll land ashore to stretch our legs, enjoy a lovely morning tea and perhaps even a swim.

Morning tea includes plunger coffee, black leaf tea or peppermint leaf tea, sugar and local full cream milk from Tilba Real Dairy. We include seasonal fruit and a locally made sweet treat, as well as fruit juice. Special dietary requirements can be catered for upon request, just let us know at time of booking. 

$5 from every booking goes to the Bega Local Aboriginal Lands Council for the conservation and preservation of the environment and culture of the area.
