Rainbow Beach Stand Up Paddle
Take a thrilling Rainbow Beach Stand Up Paddle Adventure to Sunshine Coast’s hidden tropical wildlife paradise, Double Island Point. The spectacular wind swept coloured sand cliffs protect many of the flat water lagoons and much of Honeymoon Bay making for an ideal natural environment to explore and experience the local wildlife on a guided stand up paddle lesson.
Double Island Point can only be accessed by 4X4 along the Great Beach Drive from Rainbow Beach around the low tide and the wilderness is typically a remote location perfect for stand up paddling with crystal clear flat water lagoons and a super long sandy point break ideal for beginners, intermediate and advanced looking to take the next step into the waves. If your already well advanced in stand up paddling then why not come and explore the magical waters of Honeymoon Bay in Rainbow Beach’s pristine Great Sandy National Park.
Expect to see many of the local wildlife on your Rainbow Beach stand up paddle adventure with many turtles (Six of the world’s seven marine turtle species can be found here) often seen feeding and resting in the clear shallows of the lagoons and ocean are the Green Sea turtle, Loggerhead and Hawksbill turtle. Rays, Bottlenose dolphins, many different bird species, Humpback whales (over 35000 to pass this season) and soldier crabs in their thousands are also all frequent here.
Pelican Bay is another ideal flat water location to learn to stand up paddle. This pristine location is protected from the open ocean by Fraser Island and Inskip Point behind Rainbow Beach and is an important mangrove habitat for many local wildlife. A paddle along this very rich plant diversity will often discover turtles resting or feeding, rays, mud crabs, fish, sea birds, dugongs and sometimes the endangered Australian Humpback Dolphin.
