Full Day Kayak Hire

Kayak the Clyde River in Batemans Bay & Nelligen

Kayaking Nelligen Full Day Hire


Do you want to hire a kayak for a full day ? No worries. We can hire you a kayak or canoe for the full day in Nelligen.

The kayaks are designed to take either a single person, two persons or even two adults and one small child. They are very robust and of the sit on top style. Easy to clamber back on board should you capsize. (Which is unlikely unless you try and stand or something silly).

The canoes are made by Wenonah – the best available. Can easily fit three persons.

You can either collect in Batemans Bay and return at an agreed time. Or hire from Nelligen and return them there at an agreed time. If you wish, you can pick up in Batemans Bay and drop off at Nelligen or vice versa. We will do our best to accommodate your needs.

To book your canoe or kayak, please call us on 0436 016 856. If we don’t answer, please leave a message. We are probably out canoeing on the Clyde! Or just email us here.
