Rivergods: 5 day/4 night Wildlife Kayaking at Monkey Mia
The best way to visit this remote, isolated World Heritage area is by kayak, offering a unique view of the scenery and wildlife. The seas are calm and shallow and as well as the famous Monkey Mia dolphins, there are dugongs, turtles, fish and rays.
We use stable double expedition sea kayaks. No experience is required but you should have reasonable fitness and look forward to camping out.
- All specialist gear
- Food for the trip
- 4WD trek to return at the end of the trip
- Experienced and professional guides.
Travelling to Monkey Mia, we stay at the resort this night.
(Trip does not include transport from Perth but can be arranged. Pick-up and drop-off at Denham or the airport can also be arranged)
After equipment briefing, we load the kayaks with everything we will need for the next few days and depart Monkey Mia beach. There are no shops where we're going! We paddle to Cape Rose and camp on the beach for the night.
We leave Cape Rose, stopping along the way to see the view from above on the spectacular red sand cliffs. At Guichenault Point we camp under the cliffs in a secluded mangrove, right on the beach.
Today we cross the deep waters of Herald Bay and head for the tip of Cape Peron. Here, where the waters of the bay meet the ocean, it's a great spot for fishing and seeing dolphins and bigger fish that come to feed.
We pack our camp and meet the 4WD for the trek down the Peron Peninsula stopping for an artesian spa at Peron Homestead, arriving back in Monkey Mia mid afternoon.
