Sea Kayaking


Sea kayaking in the University of Queensland Canoe Club started with the purchase of its first sea kayaks in late 2000 and early 2001. It now has a fleet of eight fully equipped single kayaks and one double kayak, available for members to use. Sea kayaking is a superb recreational past-time for the Brisbane region due to its consistent and moderate climate and multitude of very accessible paddling destinations.

Local Paddling Destinations include

  • St Helena Island
  • Green Island
  • Peel Island
  • Lamb Island
  • Maclay Island
  • North & South Stradbroke Islands
  • Moreton Island
  • Pumicestone Passage / Bribie Island
  • Caloundra coastline
  • Mujimba Island, Maroochydore
  • Noosa River, Lake Catharabba
Further away in Queensland fantastic paddling opportunities abound, including: Fraser Island, Magnetic Island, Hinchinbrook Island, and the Whitsunday Islands. Great destinations are within reach in Northern NSW including Tweed Heads/Fingal, Byron Bay, Yamba, and Ballina.

The storage capacity of the sea kayaks makes them the kayak of choice for camping trips in the bay or along the many rivers of the region. Take a look at planned and past flatwater and sea kayak trips to see some of the places members have travelled.
