Manly Kayak Centre

Established on Sydney Harbour in 1990, we are proud to be able to provide the most diverse range of aquatic products and services in Sydney.

We have three amazing locations where you can rent kayaks, stand-up paddle boards, take a lesson or tour, or hire our leisure boat for the day.


General hire, beach picnics, tours and leisure boats are conducted from our main location on Manly Wharf next to the Manly Wharf Hotel.

The second location is located off West Esplanade (west of Manly Wharf), close to the Manly Pavilion Restaurant and is where we conduct the majority of our Kayak Fitness, Kayak Yoga and Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP) classes.

With the third location at Quarantine Station this gives paddlers yet another great spot to get out on the water. The Quarantine Station is located on the Eastern Hill area of Manly, in the North Head Sanctuary.

Flow mOcean SUP & Kayak yoga classes provide a perfect way to get fit outdoors while enjoying pristine beaches and waterways.
