Please Consider Bringing along the following:

  • Any medication you may require (please inform us of your medical needs). It’s a good idea to carry any medication like an Asthma Reliever inhaler (puffer) in a waterproof bag on your person so it can be reached while paddling.
  • Sun Screen. SPF 30+
  • Insect Repellant
  • A hat or cap (that won’t blow off)
  • For those with delicate hands, gloves are advisable to prevent blisters
  • Sunglasses
  • Towel
  • Change of clothes for the end of the trip
  • Camera. You’ll need either a waterproof camera or at least a disposable camera that won’t matter if it gets wet. It not a good idea to use a non-waterproof camera on the water - it’s too easy to drop one or get it splashed.
  • We’ll supply bottled drinking water and on most our trips brunch can be provided at extra cost with prior arrangements, which usually includes a sandwich and fresh local fruit and pastries (some healthy and not so healthy). Feel free to bring extra water, sports drinks or snack food if you think you might need it.No alcohol on the paddle of course.


What to wear?

In general you should wear clothing that is comfortable that you could swim in in case you were to fall in!

However DO NOT wear cotton as they do not dry well and they dissipate body heat rapidly. You can most certainly get a chill. Cotton T-shirt , jeans, pants and shorts are therefore NOT suitable kayaking wear.

Most people wear a light short sleeve shirt with shorts over a swimsuit. Some people use bike shorts or tights. On our Rainforest Trip, we will be making rest stops along the way that offers opportunities for a swim in the refreshing hill waters. On our River to Sea Kayak Trip, we’ll be stopping by a beach for a picnic break where one can go for a swim.

A wind shell (rain jacket) can be useful although we rarely find they are needed.

A wet suit is not good to paddle in as they tend to be too restrictive and you would get very hot if it’s sunny. If you don’t wear a shirt with sleeves you might also find you get some chafing from the PFD (life jacket).

Footwear - it’s important to wear footwear that you can get wet and leave on during the paddle. Old sandshoes or wet suit booties are best otherwise old runners or sports sandals. Please DO NOT try to paddle barefoot as you never know what you could step on (sharp rocks/stones, broken glasses).

Spare clothes. You will probably want to change at the end of the trip so you’ll need spare clothes, shoes and a towel.

If you would like to shower after the paddle there is a public toilet with cold water showers and changing room at Wind Cave where we take-out for the Rainforest Kayak Trip at Bau area.

*NOTE: For those who wear spectacles; you are advised to consider switching to contact lens for the trip or to ensure that your glasses are properly secured. Otherwise you may lose them if you go for an unintended swim!

**Please Note that there will be a non-refundable handling charge on payment made. Conditions apply.
