Experience adventure and tranquility less than 5 minutes from the centre of Melbourne! A sea kayak trip is a unique way to experience the bustling city and a unique way to view the cityscape at sea level. Get a unique history lesson, have fun and exercise at the same time
Looking for a new way to see the city of Melbourne? Come along to our Melbourne Daytime tour for a new view of the city and its famed waterways.
Ideal for beginners, this sea kayak tour is the perfect way to get close - but not too close - as you watch yachts, ferries and ships pass by. Cruise along the Yarra River in the heart of the CBD, avoiding the hustle and bustle of the street traffic while taking in the city’s vibrant nature and learning a little bit about the historical significance of the dock areas.
It all begins with the provision and fitting of your personal floatation device, paddle jacket and paddle, as well as an appropriate spray deck to try to keep the water out. Once you're kitted up, you will undertake an important safety briefing, including a dry capsize drill whilst you're still on land, followed by a few warm-up stretches to ensure you're nice and limber. You will then be paired up into paddling partners - most kayaks are double kayaks, though single kayaks are available for the more experienced paddlers in the group - and taken through some basic strokes for 10 minutes before you and your group set off on the real adventure. From here, just relax and absorb the stunning Melbourne city views from the edge of the water whilst listening to historical commentary from your knowledgeable guide.
When the group returns to the start, you will pack your gear away and change into some warm clothes. After a couple of hours of kayaking, we're pretty sure you will have worked up a bit of an appetite, and there is plenty of opportunity to visit one of the many cafes or restaurants conveniently situated in the South Bank area. This tour includes all equipment, snacks and drinks and is a great introduction to what sea kayaking is like but at a gentler pace to ensure you thoroughly enjoy your kayaking experience!

We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
