Kayaks can be launched anywhere along the main beach. They can also be launched through the Harbour Mouth with permission from the harbour master.

Do not Kayak across the Harbour Mouth or in the vicinity of the mooring pontoons. This is a very busy harbour which is in constant use throughout the day.

Hire Kayaks have permission to stay within the swim line area. The swim line is marked with a series of yellow buoys which run from the North wall of the Cobb across the main beach, parallel to Marine Parade’ to Church Cove adjacent to the clock tower. The eastern end of the swim line is marked with an orange buoy.  Private Kayaks should stay outside the swim line area except when launching or recovering.

Please ensure you wear a personal buoyancy aid, carry a means of calling for help and let someone know when you expect to return from your Kayak trip.

Be extremely cautious when the wind is blowing from the land to the sea (offshore wind) as kayaks can be quickly blown out to sea. Also make allowance for the likely tidal stream you will encounter during your trip.
