LOCATION: Sorrento foreshore (west side of Sorrento Yacht Club)
DESCRIPTION: Explore the beautiful protected southern waters of Port Phillip Bay. The waters are clear and azure and full of marine life.
Participants start just before Sorrento township and firstly gear up, adjust rudders and listen to a safety talk before jumping on the water. You then get use to your double sea kayaks and develop your paddling skills in the shallows.
You then kayak past historic seaside towns of Sorrento and Portsea with rich maritime and early settlement history. Participants can observe historical mansions along the cliff tops with their outdoor swimming enclosures below.
Point Nepean National Park and the dolphin sanctuary are next. Bottlenose and Common dolphins frequent this area so it's an amazing feeling when dophins appear beside your sea kayak! You may also see sea eagles, pelicans, pacific gulls and cormorants.
