River Explorer - (2 hours on-water)

For those who are a bit short on time why not try one of our 2 hour get-away paddles? We can customise this School of Yak Kayak tour to start from several different locations along the Hunter River and within the Hunter Wetlands National Park.

  • Cobban Creek - Ash Island explorer
  • Fullerton Cove - Bird Conservation Area
  • Hexham Island - Goolwa Shipwreck

After the pre trip briefing and lesson we head of to paddle as far as time allows with a turnaround at about the one hour mark. The Hunter River is simply a great place to just paddle along and forget the rush of life for a while. We will kayak through some of the rarely visited corners of the Hunter Wetlands National Park that very few people ever see and just enjoy hanging out in boats. Your river-guide Glenn, combines the stories of a lifetime spent on the ocean with historical explanations of the Hunter River and the role it has played in the development of modern Australia and in his own life.
Lying at rest in the waters off Hexham Island are the remains of an old shipwreck, another reflection of the long maritime history of the Hunter River now left to the elements. In the bird sanctuary of Fullerton Cove most days we see white bellied sea eagles in the mangrove canopy, or flying overhead in search of prey. The national park is an important stopover for many migrating birds in the spring and summer months with more than 200 known varieties documented.

No matter where you decide to paddle with The School of Yak it's always a great adventure, call us anytime to discuss your options for the day.
