Sunrise Kayak & Coffee

Discover Sydney’s softer side

Before the sun has risen and the city remains asleep, Sydney Harbour is at its most tranquil—calm and quiet. It’s the perfect time to explore this beautiful natural harbour, all from the comfort of a kayak.

Sit back and sip on a coffee as the sun rises over Sydney’s most iconic sights—the Harbour Bridge and Opera House. Historically, culturally and naturally significant, Sydney Harbour is full of stories that we can’t wait to share with you.

What you can expect

Our fun, friendly and experienced guides will meet you at Lavender Bay boat ramp (just look for the bright kayaks). You’ll be fitted with a life jacket and given a safety brief and kayak instruction, before heading out on the water to watch the sun hit the horizon beneath the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Beautiful Lavender Bay and Blues Point foreshore are the perfect places to watch the city come to life. From November to January the sun rises early, so paddlers can enjoy a kayak under the Harbour Bridge. In our cooler months, we’ll head to Goat Island or Sawmillers Reserve, bathing in the warm rays of the morning sun. Regardless of the time of year we guarantee a picture of you and the Harbour Bridge and Opera House.

We’ll take care of the little things, with your own made-to-order barista coffee (is there any other kind), personal towels (no one likes a wet seat) and we’ll snap hundreds of photos with the best of Sydney in the background (because your paddle will definitely be brag-worthy).
