If you are experienced kayakers  looking for a Whitsunday wilderness experience, and would prefer not to join a guided trip, then freedom kayak rental is for you.

Both double and single sea kayaks are available  for hire, as well as camping and snorkelling gear. We can assist you in planning your trip – from suggested routes to information on areas suitable for snorkelling and bush walking. Our staff have the local knowledge and expertise to get you out there, enjoying the natural beauty of the Whitsunday Islands.

You can choose to start a trip directly from our mainland base at Shute Harbour or we can help arrange a water taxi for a remote drop off and/or pick up.

Guides are usually available to accompany groups for all or part of a trip. This is a popular option for those with limited paddling experience and those who appreciate local knowledge, yet don’t want to be part of a larger group. Cost of guide is $350.00 per day.

For people with limited  kayaking experience, who  would like to hire a kayak, you will need to take the water taxi out to an island with your kayak. You then keep a base camp and have fun experiencing day paddles directly from your campsite. For this option, we have sit on top kayaks available.
