The science is clearly telling us what needs to be done if we are to secure this magnificent underwater world. Doing nothing is unthinkable and falling short is not an option. That’s why we need your help.”

Anna Marsden, Managing Director, Great Barrier Reef Foundation

The Great Barrier Reef Foundation estimates there’s only ten years left to turn the tide on coral reef decline before we risk losing the Great Barrier Reef forever.

Join the Great Barrier Reef Foundation Whitsundays Kayak Adventure and use your paddle power to unite the best minds and technologies to help solve the challenges facing the Great Barrier Reef.

Over five days, you’ll explore the azure waters and white-sand beaches of this world-famous archipelago, experiencing the exquisite beauty of the Reef firsthand. Kayaking the Coral Sea, you’ll discover the unique marine life that inhabits the world’s largest coral garden and learn more about why the Great Barrier Reef needs your support to survive.

The Great Barrier Reef is the largest living structure on Earth, home to rich, diverse corals and thousands of species of marine life. But this irreplaceable ecosystem is facing a growing number of threats.

Through your fundraising and physical efforts, you’ll take an active part in protecting the Great Barrier Reef, and all its living diversity, for future generations.

› Just $10 can help create and preserve climate change ‘arks’ to restore critical habitats for threatened species

› $15 can help restore reef habitats to save endangered green turtles

› $25 can help fund innovative research to bring reef coral back to health

› $50 can help power a Reef Rangerbot to distribute baby coral and rebuild reefs

With more than 200 Reef-saving projects underway right now, with your support, the Great Barrier Reef Foundation can unite people and science to save our Reef.

How challenging is this adventure?

This adventure is ranked 3/5. While no extensive kayaking experience is required prior to registering, our adventures are specifically designed for people who are relatively fit and willing to train. The Whitsundays Kayak is a physical challenge, involving consistent paddling/trekking multiple kilometres over five days. The fitter you are, the more you will enjoy the experience. 

You will be well supported on the adventure, with the guides and your team all cheering you on. You are free to move at your own pace and we will take frequent breaks.

How do I fundraise?

Never fundraised before? Not sure where to start? No worries, we don’t expect you to do it alone. You will have regular support from the Inspired Adventures fundraising team, who will help you make a fundraising plan to meet your target. Alongside personalised coaching, we will also send you lots of ideas and resources on how to fundraise. From online fundraising to trivia nights, to bake sales and out-of-the-box ideas, we have years and years of tried and tested tips to make your fundraising a success.

Who will I be travelling with?

We believe small group travel is better for the planet, and better for you. Our adventures usually have 10 – 20 people aged from 18 to 90+ (younger ages considered on request). You can be sure that you have all come together with the shared purpose of making a difference to others and having the adventure of a lifetime.

The group will be led by a local tour guide with expert knowledge of the region. Many groups will also be accompanied by an Inspired Adventures team leader or doctor to support and motivate the team.

Where applicable, a charity representative may also join the team. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about your chosen charity and their work.

We understand the dilemma of making travel plans when the world feels unpredictable right now. You can still register for an Inspired Adventure in complete confidence, because we promise to look after you should COVID-19 travel bans affect your plans.

If COVID-19 travel bans mean your Inspired Adventure cannot go ahead as scheduled, we will endeavour to reschedule the departure to a later date to allow you still to travel as planned.
