About The Adventure

Join us for an action-packed adventure.! This one has it all....sunrise, bushwalking, kayaking, like-minded adventure women, coffee, tea and baked goods.... a perfect way to start a Sunday morning. 

About the Adventure:  Starting at twilight so we have enough time to find our own quiet place to see the sunrise on Wangi Wangi Point, you'll agree Wangi Wangi is a magical place to be at this time of the morning. 

After the sun comes up we will take a peaceful bush/waterfront walk along the shores of Lake Macquarie.

Our kayaks will be ready for us to jump in and paddle back to our starting point. 

This will be a leisurely 3- 4km paddle along the water's edge. Whether you are new to kayaking or have paddled before you can join us for this adventure, we'll provide full paddle instruction before we set off. 

All we ask is you have a moderate level of fitness to ensure it is an enjoyable walk and kayak for you as we are covering quite a distance both on foot and on water. 

To finish off we will have morning tea, including coffee, tea, cool drinks and some delicious home-baked goodies. 

On the day, you'll be supported by your Women Embrace Adventure host and Kayak Guide, who will ensure you have a great time and provide a relaxed and fun experience for everyone.

Not a problem at all, lots of women come on their own to our adventures. Your Women Embrace Adventure host will make sure everyone is introduced before we set off on this beautiful hike and pair you up with someone to paddle with. We always have lots of fun, there's no pressure, no judgment, and lots of encouragement from everyone.  By the end of the adventure, you may have just found some new adventure friends!

**Do you have a maximum weight limit for kayaking?**

Yes. Our kayaks have a maximum weight rating. As such, we have a maximum weight of 100kgs per person. Please note our kayaks are double sit-in sea kayaks that have a cockpit you will sit in. 

The cockpit width is 46cms wide where your hips will sit. 

Please feel free to contact us if you are worried about the weight limit or cockpit width - we will happily discuss if this adventure is suitable for you.

Am I going to get wet?

Yes and no - you will get some paddle splash as you paddle along, and you will get wet feet getting in and out of the kayak, but generally, that will be all.

How stable are the kayaks?

You will be kayaking in Mirage Sea Kayaks that are extremely stable, seaworthy and easy to use. The chances of a capsize are remote. You will be wearing a PFD (lifejacket) at all times, and the kayaks are virtually unsinkable due to their airtight compartments. We will also give you a safety briefing before your tour, explaining what to do to avoid capsizing and what to do if you overturn.

Will bad weather conditions affect my tour?

Wet weather will generally not cause the cancellation of a kayak adventure; in fact, some of the best paddling conditions are in the rain. Wind, on the other hand, can cause cancellations. If the wind is strong enough to be a potential safety risk, we will contact you in the days before the tour to discuss your options. Additionally, we have some good alternative locations that aren't affected by the wind. Cancellations that are made due to weather conditions made by Women Embrace Adventure are entitled to a full refund, or we can transfer your booking to another day.
