Looking for a new way to see the city of Melbourne and its waterways?

Perfect for beginners, this sea kayak tour is the perfect way to get up close and personal to watch yachts, ferries and ships passing by.

Your kayak experience begins with a short brief. You are then kitted up with a PFD, spray deck, paddle jacket, thermals and a paddle before the all important safety briefing including a dry capsize drill. Once you have done a few warm up stretches, you will be paired up into paddling partners. Most sea kayaks are double sea kayaks with a couple of single kayaks available for the more experienced paddlers in the group. After going though some basic strokes for 20 minutes, you'll set out on the adventure paddling as one group. Just relax as you take in stunning Melbourne city views from the waters edge whilst historical commentary is provided.

When the group returns to the start, the gear is packed away and you can change into some warm clothes. After a couple of hours kayaking, we're pretty sure you will have worked up a bit of an appetite, so there is plenty of opportunity at the conclusion of the kayak tour to visit one of the many cafes or restaurants surrounding the South Bank area. This tour includes all equipment, snacks and drinks and is a great sampler of what sea kayaking is like but at a gentler pace to ensure you thoroughly enjoy your kayaking experience!
