Melbourne city kayak tour




Experience Melbourne as you’ve never seen it, over two and a half hours in a kayak on the Yarra. The tour begins across the river from Federation Square and from there you will enjoy some of Melbourne’s iconic sights!


Before you get on the river the guides will take you through a quick skills session and a safety briefing. Then the adventure begins! Depending on conditions we may head upstream or downstream. Either way, you’ll get to see the city from a very different point of view.


If we head upstream we will take them past the Royal Botanical Gardens and Tennis Centre all the way to Herring Island located just past Chapel Street. At Herring Island they will get the opportunity to get out of their kayak and explore the Island before heading back down into the city.


If we head downstream we will take them for a very different view of Southbank, Crown Casino and Docklands. They will have the opportunity to get up close to multi-million dollar yachts.


They will also learn about Melbourne’s history, why the Yarra had such an important role in Melbourne being settled and how it has changed over the years. Even people who have lived in Melbourne all their lives are surprised by what they learn on our tour!
