About Apollo Bay Surf & Kayak

We operate in the beautiful environment of Apollo Bay on the Great Ocean Road


Apollo Bay Surf & Kayak can provide you with Surf Lessons and surf hire, Kayaking to the Seals and kayak hire, SUP (stand up paddle board) hire, Snorkeling tours and hire (School Groups only), & Body Board hire.


We operate in the beautiful environment of Apollo Bay on the Great Ocean Road. On our doorstep we have the Otway National Park and the Marengo Marine Sanctuary, which hosts a Seal Colony.


Our Surf School runs on the magnificent foreshore of Apollo Bay and lessons include instruction, full length wetsuits and especially designed safe soft boards. Hundreds of visitors to Apollo Bay learn to surf with us every year.


Sea Kayaking to the Marengo Seal Sanctuary is one of our most popular activities. We use ‘sit-on-top’ kayaks which are great for both beginners and experienced paddlers. It is rare not to see the seals & their pups lounging on the rocks, or even swimming & playing around the kayaks. For the adventurous we also offer the opportunity to catch waves and surf to the shore!
