Enjoy relaxation and excitement rolled into one! Only possible with this cruise of Melbourne’s waterways. Vibrant sounds and gentle music will reach you. Don’t miss this leisurely paddle through the city’s beating heart. You'll learn all about the history of the old port, and see attractions both old and new.

We begin our kayak tour in the city centre, on the Yarra River. Our guides can’t wait to meet you too. First, we’ll get a bit of admin done. Then we’ll fit each of your life jackets (plus spray jackets and thermals if it’s cold). You'll be paired up and the rudder system adjusted for back-person steering. A quick word on safety, then without further ado, we’ll get on the water.

Feeling a gentle breeze on your face, but no waves or sea spray, we’ll set out. And there are lots to see. Some highlights: the former Customs House, historical ships, former waterfall, Mission for Seamen, old warehouses and Bolte Bridge. You’ll enjoy the light music and historical commentary on the old docks area. And the more you know, the more you’ll feel the city grow on you.

There’s a rest stop halfway through the tour. Go on, stretch your legs or have a snack and drink. You’ll then paddle back to the start and disembark at the rowing landing. Walk off into the rest of your day having seen the freshest side to Melbourne!

This experience may be affected by the weather. If the wind forecast is over 20 knots or if there are lightning predictions, then the tour will be rescheduled to another time.

The tour runs for approximately 2.5 hours.

Tours operate every day of the year, subject to demand. Our busiest times include weekends and the hotter months between October - April.
