    Why You'll Love This

    What's Included?

    Our professional, relaxed guides provide all the equipment and instruction you need before taking you out to explore Hobart's harbour in stable double kayaks.

    During the tour we paddle in small groups along the shoreline of historic Battery Point to Salamanca and The Docks. Be part of the vibrant waterfront as you glide past historic tall ships, fishing boats and modern yachts, and marvel at Hobart's unique skyline of majestic Mt Wellington rising 1270m above the city streets.

    Not only will you learn about the city, the mountain and the docks, but you will also enjoy 'floating' fish-and-chips from one of Hobart's legendary fish punts - without even having to get out of your kayak!

    Our guides love this beautiful part of the world and look forward to sharing stories of its culture to enhance your adventure. With every trip we ensure that safety is priority, that everyone has a enjoyable time in a relaxed atmosphere, and that the environment is respected.

    Our trips are about good times, not hard work!
