Welcome to Wildlife & Eco Kayak Tours

Based on the tranquil waters of the Swan River, Perth Western Australia, Wildlife & Eco Kayak Tours is a family run kayaking business who love teaching and running tours for children, teenagers, families and Over 55’s. Custom, holiday and corporate tours are also available and are an excellent activity for confidence and team building.

If having a tour guide is not for you we also hire our kayaks & equipment. Kayaking is a unique gift idea, the benefits of Kayaking are holistic – physically kayaking works the core muscles, strengths the back and arms whilst reducing tension of the mind because it is soothed by the powerful sensory experience of the calm water – we call it water Meditation.

During the tour on the Swan River you will learn about local points of interest as well as our rich native wildlife and habitats around Ascot Waters, Kuljak Island and Belmont. Kayaking is a must do activity in Perth – Spring, Summer, Autumn or Winter, there is no better way to see our beautiful Swan River.
