We are going on holiday!!

After running through from September 2020 to April 2021 without taking a break we need a holiday! Sorry if you want to come kayaking or SUP boarding from April 18th to May 12th we will be closed. What do paddle sports “nuts” do for holiday?? We paddle from Victoria to Tasmania across the notorious Bass Strait! The creator of Adventure Kayaking SA, Phil Doddridge, has paddled Bass Strait three times before. His mission now is to join with his son and co-worker Patrick, and several sea instructor trainees to do it all again. Bass Strait via the eastern route is ideally designed for experienced sea kayakers and is now regularly attempted. When Phil did his first crossing some 30 years ago few had made it! If you’re interested and have a sense of adventure like us on Facebook  or Instagram(links below) to receive updates and live feeds during our expedition. The idea of the business of Adventure Kayaking SA was born in Bass Strait over a fine bottle of red!!

“This activity went over and beyond our expectations. From friendly staff to an unforgettable experience it was a day of lasting memories. To have the dolphins come right up to our kayak was a once in a lifetime kodak moment! I will recommend this activity to others of all  ages visiting Adelaide.”
