What you'll do

This tour is a spectacular way to experience the sights of Melbourne from a unique water level perspective.
The tour meets just before sunset in Victoria Harbour, Docklands, in the west end of the city. After a short safety briefing and paddling technique session on land we set off for an exploration of Victoria Harbour before tying up to a dock in a beautiful marina. The guests stay seated in the kayaks and are served fish n chips for a very special “on-the-water” dining experience.
After our meal we continue our tour upstream, under the Bolte Bridge and through to downtown Melbourne. You get amazing views of the skyline as the sun sets. We kayak past the Crown Casino and alongside Southbank, and time the tour to coincide with the dramatic “fire-ball” display.
Our tour ends at the boat landing area at the Rowing Sheds, right in the heart of Melbourne, and directly across the river from Federation Square.
Other things to note
There is a zip pocket in the front of the life jacket that is suitable for a phone or other small items you may want to have access to. Otherwise we provide dry bags larger items.

This was a fantastic family experience . The time flew and all 4 of us found it less strenuous than we expected. Glorious views of Melbourne as seen from the river - fabulous photo ops!

We did this last year for our anniversary and my wife wanted to do it again this year. If you know my wife, that’s enough said right there. We had a wonderful time and are very grateful for our guides’, Paul and Kent, warm welcome and expertise. This is a great way to see Melbourne from a different perspective and we can’t recommend it highly enough. Magical Thank you. See you next year.

Excellent way to see the city from a different viewpoint. Made a nice activity on a Saturday night - much more wholesome, magical and fun than going for a few pints!
