Tour overview
We meet and launch at East Fremantle Yacht Club and paddle slowly upriver through Bicton Bay, hugging the riverbanks. Here we take the time to admire the eclectic mix of houses, houseboats and watercraft all while enjoying the peace and serenity that is found whilst kayaking.
We continue our paddle through the crystal clear waters towards the Blackwall Reach cliffs and spend time taking in the natural beauty the limestone caves, crevices and water bird nesting sites in the Swan River’s deepest location.
Our paddle includes several ‘raft ups’ where we get together ‘mid-stream’ for a chat and a story. A short paddle then sees us disembarking back at our start point and finishes at the ‘members only’ East Fremantle Yacht Club to enjoy the very scenic setting over a well-earned coffee, tea or soft drink.
Paddle duration & rating:
The Cliffs & Caves Kayak Tour is a slow paddle for approx. 45min up river to the Blackwall Reach cliffs. Whilst there is boat traffic in this area, the river here is quite wide and we hug the opposite shoreline to the traffic. The area we paddle in is tidal and subject to wind, depending on the day/season. Some people will experience short durations of elevated heart rate depending on
the wind. The paddle back is approx. 30 minutes.
