SYDNEY Harbour Kayaks has a range of single and double kayaks, surf skis and stand-up paddle boards for hire and takeaway experiences. For about $20, beginners can grab a sit-on-top kayak and paddle away. There are two outlets (near the Spit Bridge and at Manly); hire a kayak and drive west to set off on the Nepean River system near Penrith. Or for a more convivial experience, grab six mates and enjoy a twohour Coffee Tour from the Spit to Middle Harbour and return, complete with qualified guide; top it off with a well-earned caffeine fix at a secluded harbour beach.
