Hey everyone, over the last couple of months we’ve taken some great pics on our Palm Cove Kayaking Tours, heading out to Double Island. Double Island has a lot to offer from all it’s marine life to it beautiful surrounding reefs. We have been running tours out to Double Island for 4 years now and we never get bored with it. Everyday is a new adventure and full of surprises. Over the years, being a guides in the area, we’ve got to know the area pretty well and i guess our passion is in sharing our knowledge and those experiences with the people that make our job so great.
Check out some of these photos we took on our Palm Cove Kayaking Tours
Wow Palm Cove Kayaking Tours don’t get much better than this!
This Picture here was taken heading back over from one of our Palm Cove Kayaking Tours. This particular part of the reef is great for snorkelling. The Coral is thriving and we often see turtles here. It’s is also amazing to kayak above! We ofter see turtles, rays and different fish swimming under the kayaks.
The cave is probably my favourite part
This limestone cave is an exhilarating experience. It really pays to have an experienced guide with you when entering this cave. The entrance to the cave can fill up if swell comes through from the north side. Here at pacific watersports we know Double Island better than anyone and all out guides know the best, safest way to enter the cave.
Rugged Little Island
Haycock Island, also know as Scouts Hat is a rugged little island to the southeast of Double Island. It is believed that the Americans used to test their explosives and ammunition on the island giving it the odd shape it is today. If the conditions are right we often stop on Haycock Island for a short break during our Palm Cove Kayaking Tours.
Just another perfect day in FNQ 🙂
This pic was take heading around the western side of Double Island from the north. The is a Resort located on this part os the island. Being privately owned, we aren’t actually allowed on the island. We are however allowed up to the high tide line on the beach, which mean there’s still plenty to explore by foot.
The sand bar on the south side of the island is a great place to pull up and have a break during our kayaking tours. This is where we often see Shovel Nose Sharks and small rays feeding in the shallows. It’s also the perfect place for all the small juveniles to hide out from the big baddies 😉
