What you'll do

Meeting on the riverside across from Federation Square and Flinders Train Station right in the centre of Melbourne, this kayak tour is a stunning way to check out all the iconic sights of Melbourne from a unique water-level perspective. After a quick briefing and paddling lesson, guests get kitted up and head downriver under the Princes Bridge and into the heart of Melbourne. The tour continues along the Yarra River past Southbank into South Wharf before entering the Docklands precinct and the beautiful Yarra’s Edge Marina. After a short break the paddlers then head back upstream to soak up the stunning skyline views from a different perspective, finishing back at the starting point along Boathouse Drive.

Because of bad weather my Kayaking trip was rescheduled to be with Paul. It was a memorable first experience and I would like to repeat it soon. Kayaking may look difficult from outside but it is not and is fun.

We had such a wonderful experience on this Kayak tour! Kent was an excellent guide and instructor. Making it very easy to understand basic kayaking and be able to manoeuvre around to see the breathtaking sights of Melbourne. He also talked about some interesting facts that we didn’t know about. Definitely check it out if you can!

Fantastic experience, we’ve lived in Melbourne for more than 2 years and wanted to discover the city from another perspective and absolutely enjoyed our time. Both Kent and Tom were super friendly sharing stories about the city as well as about their lives. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting or wanting to rediscover Melbourne !
