A young man has died after being pulled unresponsive from a kayak off Dawesville.

Police believe the man in his 20s was one of two people who were kayaking about 1.3 nautical miles off the coast about 1.20pm on Sunday when he became unresponsive in the water while diving.

An EPIRB was soon activated which allowed a Marine Rescue vessel and the RAC rescue helicopter to pinpoint the exact location of the man.

"The man was taken on board the rescue vessel and emergency first aid was provided," a WA Police spokesperson said.

"The RAC Rescue helicopter arrive on scene and a Paramedic was lowered into the vessel to continue with the provision of emergency first aid.

"Tragically, the man could not be revived."

A report will be prepared for the Coroner.
