I personally love exploring new places, and finding new and exciting ways to explore places I have visited many times.
Being from Sydney, I have had the privilege of enjoying the harbour on a daily basis. Therefore I decided it was about time I explore the harbour from a different view.
I hired some Kayaks from Sydney Harbour Kayaks; grabbed some friends and ventured out of my comfort zone.
Was definitely outside of my comfort zone
Kayaking was not something I had mastered before; yet being on the Kayak for five minutes, I became confident and took my concentration from keeping my balance to enjoying the views that surrounded me.
I literally felt like a tiny tin boat amongst massive boats and ships, and I absolutely loved every minute of it.
We explored new and exciting coves and harbour beaches. We also waved to the big ferries and boats that floated past.
For the adventurous - be sure to explore Sydney Harbour this way.
As well as kayaks, Sydney Kayaks hire also hire out stand up paddle boards. The latter is a new found love of mine, and therefore I am heading back out in a couple of weeks to give this a go.
This is a beautiful and peaceful way to explore Sydney, and I would recommend it to anyone.
