Kayak & Pizza on Newcastle Harbour!

This is an easy introduction to kayaking and is a great way to experience Newcastle Harbour by night under the supervision of qualified guides. Basic paddling and boat handling will be covered before we venture past the marina and head east.
We pick up our pizza selections at Queens Wharf and enjoy dinner in the kayak as we drift with the tide. Coffee, tea or hot chocolate will be provided on the return journey before we paddle through the marina on our way to the launch site.
