Our tours operate in all weather conditions that are deemed safe. We do not operate in unsafe conditions however we do operate in all weather. So if rain is forecast come prepared with a waterproof jacket and a change of dry clothes for the end of the tour.
Are there any crocodiles in the everglades?
No. It is too far south for crocodiles to inhabit the Noosa everglades.
Should I bring a waterproof case for my phone?
Yes. We provide waterproof bags however we also suggest that you bring a waterproof case or zip lock bag to protect your electrical equipment.
What is the difference between a guided and self guided tour?
Our self guided tours allow you to experience the Noosa everglades independently, you are given a detailed landmark and map briefing, a kayaking lesson and top of the line equipment to have a unique adventure where you are able to navigate the branching waterways of the Noosa everglades independently.
Our guided tours offer you the chance to experience the Noosa Everglades with one of our passionate and knowledgeable guides. Our guided tours are fully catered and we can accommodate all dietary requirements. We provide a delicious and healthy morning tea and a gourmet lunch spread using locally sourced ingredients. Our guided tours are a perfect way to learn about the ecology and history of the everglades. All of our Guides are qualified, highly skilled and have been trained by Vivienne Golding, World champion kayaker and owner of Kanu Kapers Australia.
Can I get a refund if I don't go/can't go?
In accordance with our terms and conditions, refunds are not offered, however a full credit is offered if for a range of reasons you cancel or your Noosa Everglades Kayak tour is rescheduled by Kanu Kapers Australia.
