I saw this in the local community newspaper. The local Onkaparinga council is promoting this.
I know that there's plenty of kayaking on the Onkaparinga estuary but I didn't know that there was a local Port Noarlunga company that had see through and glass bottomed kayaks! Sounds like a great way to spend a few hours.
They did say that the places were booking out very quickly!
The company details are:
Come and explore the reef with our see-through kayaks in Port Noarlunga.Easy Kayaks has expanded our kayak hire in Port Noarlunga and added a beachside location on Port Noarlunga Beach offering guided eco tours of the reef in our six new see-through kayaks in Port Noarlunga.You will be guided by our aquatics instructor, who will accompany and lead you for a paddle along the Port Noarlunga Reef stopping at key observation points for you to look at the underwater life and other points of interest along the length of the reef through the window on the kayak floor. We will also provide some bread to feed and entice the local fish to encircle and swim under the glass bottom kayaks on your explore the reef tours, so you can get a closer look at some of the Port Noarlunga Reef’s local inhabitants.
Our guided tours of the Port Noarlunga Reef using glass bottom kayaks are a unique perspective on kayak hire in Adelaide. Reef tours will be held up to two times each day in the Summer at low tide and will give each paddler and small passenger an opportunity to see some of the great underwater sights without having to go below the water.Outside of summer months, guided tours of the Port Noarlunga Reef can also be conducted throughout the year; however, tours are always subject to weather conditions and bookings are essential. During school terms, tours are conducted on weekends only.
Each of our glass bottom kayaks in Port Noarlunga can hold one adult and one small child sitting opposite them, allowing both to view the underwater reef life through the kayak. Before setting off on your guided kayak tour, you will be briefed on weather conditions, arm signals in case of assistance needed, any hazards that need highlighting, and points of interest along the Explore The Reef Tour. Should any paddler tire or show signs of fatigue, their kayak will be tethered to a staff member and towed during the rest of the duration of the tour.
(Guided Reef Tour season for 2015-2016 is from Dec 28 – Apr 15)
Reef tour bookings and advance payments are essential, so please use the booking form below. As soon as we receive your booking and payment, we will contact you to allocate your tour time. Tours are normally conducted at low tide anywhere between 8:30AM and 2:30PM.Each Explore The Reef Tour lasts approximately 60 minutes and costs $60 per kayak. Each tour will also be accompanied by one tour guide and an additional staff member to assist stragglers.
