Discover Keswick Island by kayak or boat.

Boating, Sailing & Kayaking

One of the best ways to discover the treasures of Keswick Island is by boat or kayak.

The golden beaches and protected coves of Keswick and its neighbouring islands offer numerous safe anchorages, and great areas to explore by boat or kayak.  For further information on sailing in the region, a great reference book is 100 Magic Miles of the Great Barrier Reef – the Whitsunday Islands.

Jetty

A mobile jetty is situated in Egremont Passage.  The jetty is a 23 metre gangway attached to a 6×3 metre pontoon, and provides short-term drop-off/pick-up for most shallow hull boats (up to 12 metres in length).

Be aware that Keswick Island experiences significant tides, which at times can impact access to certain areas of the island.  The hours of operation of the jetty will vary, depending on tides.  Typically, the jetty is open for use 3 hours on each side of high tide during weekend daylight hours.
