Full description
Experience the sights of Melbourne from a unique water level perspective. Melbourne’s Yarra River is an excellent location for new paddlers to experience kayaking for the first time, or for experienced kayakers to enjoy a stunning paddle through the scenic waterways. No kayaking experience is needed to enjoy the tour, as patient guides will be with you every step of the way. Make use of a fleet of fibreglass sea kayaks, which are extremely stable and easy to operate. The tour meets just before sunset in Victoria Harbor, part of the modern Docklands precinct in the west end of the city. After a short safety briefing and paddling technique session on dry land, set off for an exploration of the sights in Victoria Harbor before tying up to a dock in a beautiful marina. Stay seated in your boats to be served fish and chips for a very special on-the-water dining experience.  After your meal continue your tour upstream, under the Bolte Bridge and through to Melbourne’s lively downtown. Kayaking past the Crown Casino and alongside stylish Southbank, continue past Flinders Street Railway Station and beneath historic Princes Bridge before arriving at the approach to Melbourne’s sporting precinct. Enjoy the sights and sounds from your unique vantage point as the sun goes down and the city comes to life. Your 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.

This trip brought us from the historic pier area and down into the city center area. The pace was good and the event suitable for both inexperienced and well experienced kayakers. Within about 20-30 minutes of paddling we stopped for dockside dinner in the kayaks of fish and chips delivered to us in our kayaks. The route took us to the casino area where we witnessed the fireballs from the water before finishing up near the symphony hall. The kayaks are stable two seater sea kayaks and a bottle of water was provided each participant and loaner dry bags were available,
