About Bay Island Water Sports

Bay Islands Water Sports has been operating on the Redlands Coast since 2018.

 Looking for a fantastic and family-friendly water sports experience? Look no further than Bay Island Water Sports, where we offer the widest variety of non-motorized watercraft in Australia! 

We are based at Raby Bay Foreshore Park, Cleveland, on the first sandy beach which provides a safe and easy access for launching our water craft.

Our play ground to cruise, paddle or peddle over is the incredible Moreton Marine Park Which renowned for its exceptional natural beauty and diverse wildlife. This protected area encompasses a range of ecosystems, including coral reefs, seagrass beds, mangroves. 

These underwater meadows serve as vital nurseries for various marine species, including seahorses, turtles, and dugongs which we spot regularly out on our trips. 

? Something Fun, Something New, Something for Everyone! ?

At Bay Island Water Sports, we believe in providing exciting and memorable experiences for the entire family. 

 Widest Variety of Non-Motorized Watercraft: We offer an incredible array of watercraft options to suit every preference and skill level. From stand-up paddleboards and kayaks to waterbikes, walk on water with the hobie steppers and the 4 man hobie fiesta, there's something for everyone to enjoy!

We’ve also got coffee! Barista coffee, cold drinks, and sweet and savoury snacks can be purchased from our coffee van.

Karen Robertson

Hi I’m Karen, a Welsh girl living my Aussie dream, going to work on the beach!

My background is in travel, and I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world before making the Redlands Coast my home 10 years ago with my husband and two children. In fact, this is the longest I’ve lived anywhere since leaving home. I love being out on the water, Its my happy place and my passion is to share this with you so you’ll love it too. 

Ashley Scott

Hi I’m Ashley.  I’m originally from Tasmania. I worked as a manager in a gold mine in Kalgoorlie before converting a bus and driving it across the country from Kalgoorlie to Gympie. I’ve been in Brisbane for 20 years and had a handyman business - which is how I met Karen and her husband.

Now I love going to work on the beach and sharing my love of the beautiful Southern Moreton Bay waterways. I reckon we’ve got one of the best places for kayak and standup paddle board hire in Brisbane, with our calm clear waters and white sandy beaches.

My mission is to make everyone a part of our Bay Island family. 

Happy People!

The location is superb and more importantly, the staff are amazing. These guys made our Australia Day amazing. Thanks so much and you have made a customer for life!!! - Craig McGregor  (Facebook Review)

They are friendly, helpful and really know their stuff - Meg Beutel (Facebook Review)

They are well priced and provide lessons and tours, or just hire one of their crafts and take off for an hour or two. I've been hiring their kayaks for years. - Ree Crichton 

I love going to see the guys here. I am a frequent visitor and while I have tried all the water toys I love stand up paddle boarding the best. So peaceful to be out on the water, with sightings of turtles, dolphins and dugongs if you are lucky. After a paddle, it is great to relax and watch the water while drinking a coffee. So much fun to be had for solos, friends or families. Something for everyone no matter their age. - Karen J.
