Hop on a kayak and tour along ripples of the water as you gaze at some of Sydney's most remarkable sights.

A guide will usher you through some of Sydney's most intriguing sights including shipwreck locations, colourful rock formations, past the remains of old military sites, and much more. Stories will be shared by the guide along the journey.

And you can choose between two kayaking tours;

The 2 Hour Coffee Tour. Paddle by Castle Rock Beach, Grotto Point, and Balmoral as a guide leads your group out to Middle Harbour for a view of the Pacific Ocean. But you need to organize a group of at least six people if you want to participate in this tour.

You will have a break at one of Middle Harbour's beaches where the kayak guide will brew fresh coffees and teas so that you get the boost that you need to paddle back to Spit Bridge. Click here for more information.

The 4 Hour Kayak Eco Tour. Travel under The Spit Bridge and go further into Middle Harbour and paddle beside the Garigal National Park.

Venture into the deep depths of nature and see the kinds of wildlife that Sydney really has to offer. A morning tea break is also included on a part of land that is relatively undisturbed. Read here for more details.

If you really want your group to bond, take part in the Photo Challenge Team Building Activity where your team must undergo three activities including The Photo Challenge, The Search for the Tadeshi, and The Pelican Air, which will encourage your group to work together and be motivated.

But if you aren't exactly a pro at paddling through the water on a kayak, you're in luck. Free sessions are held including a 3 Hour Paddling Session with the professional paddling staff at Sydney Kayaks.

Receive free safety lessons which includes tips on rafting, preventing injuries, and on knowing what to do if your kayak capsizes and so on.

A session on freeride kayaking is also free. Choose your own course and catch some swells and boat wakes.

If you don't own a kayak then you have to pay to rent one. To see rental prices on the many kayaks on offer, click here.

And if you enjoy the free sessions, you can opt for private lessons where you (or your group) will learn to kayak in a private session with the guide.

Or try the All Day Sea Kayaking Course. Here you learn all the key paddle strokes in the morning then you implement them in the early afternoon as you learn to steer with minimum effort. In the later times of the afternoon, you learn to perform assisted rescues.

So give the kayak a go. Explore what Sydney Harbour has to offer as you float just inches away from its surface.

After all, it's a good opportunity to try something new (that is if you aren't already a pro at kayaking). So come and step into the boat.
