FAR NORTH QLD OFFSHORE ADVENTURE
Since 2005, Zephyr Tours has been taking people to amazing remote kiting destinations in Australia’s backyard, and our Far North Queensland Offshore Adventure is no exception.
At Zephyr Tours, we are always looking to find the perfect kite destinations; on this tour, we’ve done just that! Basing ourselves in the Daintree Rainforest at Cape Tribulation, we’ll visit the breathtaking offshore coral cays in style with our private charters. Imagine dreamy white sands and perfect, untouched sandbars offering smooth, pristine water. Did we hear you say kite heaven? We also happen to be smack bang in the middle of some amazing trade winds, expecting 15-25 knots daily; need we say more? Linking up with Windswell, this small-group tour is perfect for the special few who want to get into some epic kiting and be the first to experience this amazing new Zephyr Tour, which we hope to build on for years to come.
Staying at a stunning resort in the heart of the world’s oldest rainforest in Cape Tribulation, our all-inclusive package includes breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, and, as with all Zephyr Tours, everything is taken care of. All you need to do is strap in and enjoy the ride!
Each day, we will take you by private charter to explore the beautiful outer reef, which is just a short boat trip off the mainland. We will set up our base for the day on one of the remote coral cays, which are tiny, pristine, powder-soft, white-sand islands that poke out from the Coral Sea. Fringed by stunning reef systems with clear turquoise waters, you’ll be blown away when you visit this area, which sits just off the Cape Tribulation National Park. Below the water’s surface, you’ll find abundant marine life, including turtles, starfish and giant clam gardens. When the tides are right, the reef reveals its secret kitesurfing spots, which are the best Far North Queensland offers.
The coral cays get the full force of the winter trade winds, which start in March and run through September, blowing an average of 20 knots daily. With consistent temperatures of 26 degrees both in and out of the water, far North Queensland offers the perfect winter escape with guaranteed winds.
Our experienced team will be on hand to offer coaching and support, making sure you get the most enjoyment while you progress with your kiting. We’ve secured all the toys and trimmings to set up base on remote sandbars while you kick back between sessions and relax under the shade. If you’ve still got any energy to burn, we’ll have all the best gear for you to enjoy snorkelling, fishing, spearing, foiling, wakeboarding and more! But let’s face it, guys, I’ll be super impressed if you have any energy left, as we will be shredding as much as we can!
Our Far North QLD Tour offers you the ultimate kitesurfing adventure. With the best support, guides and coaches on hand to deliver a unique and personalised service, it will be an experience that will blow your mind!

You’ll be staying in the heart of Cape Tribulation in the Daintree, a UNESCO world heritage site, where the rainforest meets the reef. The Lodge is a superb tropical getaway. A place and space to delight, inspire and refresh yourself.
The environmentally-friendly resort is set back in the lush coastal rainforest where the Lodge’s accommodations are in harmony with its surrounding tropical green landscape. The spectacular gardens are designed to attract the splendid rainforest creatures where guests can witness from their rooms the magical display of nature and wildlife unique to this region.
The Lodge is just back from Cape Tribulation Beach and Myall Beach, and its famous mangrove boardwalks. You can really escape the day to day madness and relax in one of Australia’s most beautiful settings where the dense rainforest reaches all the way down to the coast from the rugged mountains, alongside ancient and exotic plant life, bordering waterfalls and crystal clear jungle streams.
To keep it simple, we’ve included accommodation based on a shared room into the packages, and we book the best available when you confirm your booking.
Add the Single Supplement (which is equal to half the room cost per night) if you are a solo traveller and want a deluxe room all to yourself, or if you snore.
