‘Where we’re going, we don’t need roads…’
Okay, so we’re not flying off into the air in a DeLorean, Back to the Future style – instead, we’re taking to the water! Join an experienced local guide on this unique Melbourne city tour that shows you all those iconic Melbourne sights from the comfort of your very own kayak. If you’re looking for a Melbourne tour with a twist, you just found it.
After a quick briefing and paddling lesson, you’ll begin this Melbourne kayak tour by heading downriver under the Princes Bridge and into the heart of Melbourne. You’ll continue to glide along the Yarra, past Flinders Station and up to the legendary Polly Woodside Tallship, before entering the Docklands precinct and the beautiful Edge Marina. Here you’ll have a little break, where you can rest whilst your guide will fill you in on some local stories.
Next, you’ll journey onwards on this Melbourne tour back upstream past Crown Casino and the lively South Bank district. Along the way you’ll soak up the views and discover the tales behind these famous Melbourne landmarks. The tour will finish up back at Boathouse Drive, where you’ll hop back on dry land.
This Melbourne tour is a good length for younger paddlers who can team up with Mum or Dad, or one of our guides. No paddling experience is necessary for kayaking in Melbourne, as the waters are very gentle. Our experienced guides will be with you every step of the way, and there to help if you have any concerns. With a fleet of extremely stable Sea Bear sea kayaks, the experience will be even easier for first-time paddlers.
