Gannets at Cape Kidnappers

The Cape plays host to 4 different nesting areas for the Gannets. Gannet Beach adventures take you on the journey to view these majestic birds.

Departures take place at low tide so visitors can be taken along the beach on a trailer being towed by a 1949 Minneapolis-Moline tractor. Regular stops along the way are available for those magical photo opportunities that Cape Kidnappers provides!

Two colonies are visited on the tour and visitors are so close to the Gannets at times that you can almost touch them from the trailer.  A 90 minute break during the tour offers visitors time for a picnic, a dip in the water or a scenic walk up to another of the colonies. 

This tour is perfect for visitors to the area, especially bird enthusiasts and families.
