Your Melbourne kayak adventure starts with a safety briefing and instruction on paddling techniques; no past kayaking experience is required. When your group is ready, hop into your state-of-the-art sea kayak, and take off with your guide along the Yarra River, which runs through the city center, past landmarks like Federation Square. When booking, choose either the afternoon tour or nighttime tour.
Afternoon Docklands Tour (2 hours)
Paddle downriver underneath Princes Bridge, gliding through the heart of the city. After passing by Flinders Street Station, cruise up to the Polly Woodside sailing ship at South Wharf and enter the Docklands district, passing by Edge Marina. Take a quick break to rest, and then turn around to paddle up the river, passing by Crown Casino and the Southbank district on your way to Boathouse Drive, where your tour ends.
Melbourne by Night Tour (2.5–3 hours)
Starting from Docklands, paddle upriver, passing underneath Bolte Bridge on your way to central Melbourne. Admire the illuminated city skyline as you kayak by Crown Casino and Southbank, and then paddle past Flinders Street Station and under historic Princes Bridge. When you reach the city’s sporting precinct, you’ll have views of well-known athletic venues like the MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground) and Rod Laver Arena. Your tour ends with return to Southgate.
