Kayaking with dolphins is one thing, kayaking with dolphins, rays, whales and turtles is another. Right now (May - November), the Humpback Whales are migrating and hundreds of them are passing Cape Byron Marine Park every day.
Are you up for an amazing wilderness experience? Cape Byron Kayaks run very popular (twice daily) three hour guided dolphin "surfaris", which are not to be missed if you're anywhere near the Rainbow Region. These action packed tours come with free pick up, free photos, free snorkeling on Middle Reef (weather permitting) and the best bit - free Tim Tams (iconic Australian chocolate biscuits) on Wategos Beach for morning/afternoon tea.
Cape Byron Kayaks also have an incredible guarantee - if you don't see dolphins, whales or turtles, you get a free return trip. You don't need to be an experienced kayaker to participate, and the professional guides keep a close watch on all tour members at all times. Full instructions and all safety gear are provided, including life jackets, wet suits, and helmets.
Anyone with the slightest inkling for adventure and/or love of dolphins, whales, rays or turtles definitely needs to give a "Dolphin Surfari" a try. I reckon there is no better way to learn about the local regional history, and I recommend finishing off your tour with lunch or dinner at Byron Beach Cafe.
