At Shakas Adventure Tours, we value true experience. We value real people, real experiences, local history, the natural environment and taking yourself outside your comfort zone. We're a team of discovers, explorers, gatherers, thinkers and innovators, who believe there is so much to learn by exploring the natural, local environment around us.
We believe it's important to do everything we can to be responsible. From the little things such as recycling in our office and on our trips, to making a positive contribution to the destinations we visit. We care about the impact we have on the environment. We are dedicated to giving our customers support, information and assistance to make their trip responsible. Safety is our number one priority.
We've been in the tourism market for over 3 years. Some may say this isn't a long time in the world of sustainable tourism, however we've been travelling the world for ever, and at the heart of a good tour is a memorable experience. We have helped countless individuals, groups and companies fulfil their dreams on our trips. We hold a QUEENSLAND OPERATOR ACCREDITATION and all our drivers have their QUEENSLAND DRIVER AUTHORISATION.
Our aim is to link you with your surrounding environment and the people around you, in a way that ensures you get the best experience!
Currently, we operate to North Stradbroke Island 2 days a week with two options for tours. Choose from our Day Tour or our Overnight Tour.
On the Day Tour we explore the island, it's incredible wildlife, beaches and lookouts. On the island we are exposed to wild Kangaroos, Koalas, Dolphins, Turtles, Manta Rays, Whales (in season) and so much more! Empty, clean, clear watered beaches that you could only dream about! We also offer experiences on our day tour with surf board or paddle board hire from North Stradbroke Surf School and Straddie Stand Up Paddle!
On our Overnight Adventures, we really get the opportunity to soak in the island vibe. We spread our tour out into a nice slow, relaxing environment. Over 2 days and 1 night, we get the chance to watch the sun go down over the water at Adder Rock, have music around the campfire at the YHA Manta Lodge & Scuba Centre, as well as all of the activities mentioned above.
All meals, transportation, photos and accommodation are included on our tours. On top of it all we add in a free Eco Marine Paddle Tour with Straddie Stand Up Paddle - this takes us deep into the marine parks surrounding the island where you have the opportunity to see turtles, sting rays, dolphins, schools of fish and so much more swimming under and around your paddle board!
For anyone interested in adding on an extra for your tour, we also work with other local businesses for Scuba Diving, Snorkelling (Manta Lodge), Surf Lessons (North Stradbroke Surf School) and Kayaking or Sandboarding (Straddie Adventures).
