The Margaret River Kayaking and Winery Tour is definitely not your standard Margaret River Wine Tour in a minivan or coach that follows a predictable route. At Surf N’ Dirt Tours we like to start the day with a Kayaking Adventure in the morning before spending the afternoon enjoying the finest wines, gourmet produce and natural wonders that Margaret River has to offer.
Unlike the big bus tours, we pride ourselves on having a flexible schedule that can be tailored to suit your preferences. Your expert local guide Paul Berry will discuss the range of winery, scenic and gourmet food options available to you on the day. Paul calls it “fun, spur of the moment personalised touring!”
Another added benefit of this tour is that you have the option of requesting the Margaret River Wine and Adventure Tour wonder dog- Mojo- to come along and join in on the fun. He loves people, is great with kids and has a real passion for kayaking, swimming and wine touring.
The Blackwood River is one of Western Australia’s premier kayaking locations and is surrounded by beautiful untouched scenery and wildlife. A relaxing mornings paddle along the river whilst manoeuvring around fallen trees and spotting the local wildlife characterizes our Margaret River Kayaking tour which is perfect for all levels of Kayakers. Black Bream often dart about beneath the kayaks whilst overhead, eagles, white-faced herons and kite hawks glide, and cormorants, swamp hens and ducks frolic on the banks.
Paddling the river whilst surrounded by the national park is so peaceful and stunningly beautiful that you often find yourself slipping into a meditative state. It is one of Margaret River’s hidden gems and is definitely a ‘must-do’ experience when visiting the region.
The clear, pristine water also offers a wild swimming experience like no other, which we regularly encourage our guests to experience.
Kick your feet up and relax after the kayak adventure as a tasty sit-down picnic lunch is provided to you on the banks of a stunning creek. Relive the best aspects of your morning paddle as you enjoy delicious food and great company.
After lunch we embark on a winery tour of Margaret River’s finest boutique wineries and local gourmet producers. Taste awarding winning wines from the region and sample chocolate and olive oil as we visit the local gourmet outlets. Learn about the history of the wine industry in the region as we customize the stops to suit the group’s preferences.
The cost of this tour is only $150 per person.
If you are the type of person who wants a fun, relaxed wine touring experience without the crowds then this is the tour for you. It not only offers you the chance to discover some of Margaret River’s best boutique vineyards and natural wonders but you will also interact with local wildlife and enjoy a memorable kayaking adventure.
