Plastic is a major ecological burden impacting oceans around the world, including here in Sydney. Researchers predict that by 2050 plastic will outweigh fish in the sea. Those looking to make a difference while enjoying a uniquely Sydney experience can join this guided kayak around Sydney Harbour that also serves to cleanup the ocean.
Sydney by Kayak is an organisation that runs kayaking lessons and tours throughout the city. For the past several years, the company has been running guided tours with the express purpose of removing rubbish from the ocean. The sustainability-focused tours generally hit the harbour four days a week: Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. Each tour runs from 9.30–11am and costs $50 per person.
Included in the tour is 90 minutes on the water taking in the sights and removing rubbish from the water, two kayak guides to take you around, photos in front of the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge and a complimentary coffee (in a reusable cup of course). All equipment is also provided and cleaned with marine safe disinfectant between tours.
Sydney by Kayak is aiming to collect 200 kilograms of rubbish in February 2021 and also donates $15 from every seat sold to funding Seabins around Sydney.
