About Us

Hello from Pioneer Kayaking!

In January 2009, after a particularly spectacular paddle out at Cape Woolamai, Stewart thought that it would be fantastic to be able to share with others the beauty of Phillip Island from the water. Well, one and a half years later and that aspiration became a reality.

Pioneer Kayaking is a fun and professional family run company that was born from a great passion for sea kayaking, the natural environment, and a desire to share these experiences with others.

We are very proud of our tours and the fact that we can reach very rarely explored locations yet have minimal impact on the environment.
