This tour begins in Victoria Harbour with a short safety briefing and paddling technique session.  And then you’ll set off in your kayak on the Yarra River.

“…nice and easy kayaking…would recommend.”

“…The fish ‘n chips were delicious…kayaking was very safe and only moderate fitness was required.”

“This was a very relaxed and enjoyable paddle with great instructions for beginners.  The city lights…were impressive…”

“…I can highly recommend this to locals and tourists alike…”

Enjoy the sights and sounds as the sun goes down and the city comes to life.  Your knowledgeable guides will tell you about what you’re seeing, fun anecdotes and local information.  

Explore Victoria Harbour before tying up to a dock in a beautiful marina.  Stay seated in your kayak and you’ll be served fish ‘n chips for an “on the water” dining experience.

You’ll continue upstream after your meal.  Paddle beneath the Bolte Bridge and see downtown Melbourne from the water.  Kayak alongside stylish Southbank and see the Crown Casino’s “fireball” display.  Eight towers along the riverbank shoot the world’s largest fireballs into the night’s sky.  It is an awesome spectacle.

Glide past Flanders Street Railway Station and go beneath the historic Princes Bridge.  The final stop on your tour will be waterside at the Rowing Sheds in the heart of Melbourne directly across the river from Federation Station.

Be sure to bring your camera for some stunning photos that you can share with your friends and family on social media.  This truly will be an unforgettable experience.
