Eurobodalla has so much to offer kayakers, canoeists and standup paddleboarders.
With three major rivers being the Clyde, Moruya and Tuross and the added bonus of twenty stunning lakes and a 110 kilometre coast line it is a must to bring your kayak with you. If you can't add the kayak to the holiday packing then quality kayak hire is available for all members of the family.
Not overly confident of kayaking - then you can book a lesson or take a guided tour with experts.
There are three Kayak tour companies that offer a wide choice or kayak tours in the Eurobodalla

Their website is a definitive resource and a committed and passionate facility for sharing information about some kayaking activities in the district, for kayakers who want to know when and where other paddlers might be found on the water. They have assembled a collection of detailed route maps that might help advise a new comer to the area interested in exploring our waterways.
