Experience a half day 'ridin rapids', only 35 minutes from the Melbourne CBD. Learn some new skills and ride a few rapids as you paddle approximately six kilometres down the Yarra River, surrounded by native flora and fauna. Single and double kayaks are available!
Enjoy the feeling of floating, splashing through rapids and paddling down the Yarra River, surrounded by native Australian flora and fauna. The experience is approximately 6 kilometres, but don't worry about the distance, you're in a boat with another person and the current helps too. Single kayaks are also available for the more adventurous!
Once this experience has been confirmed, changes are at the discretion of the experience provider and arranged directly with them according to their policy.
Group numbers will vary for each trip. Minimum numbers of 4 apply, with a usual maximum of up to 16. Larger groups are available for special events/functions. Depending on group size there will usually be a minimum of 1 tour guide for up to 5 craft.
Thermals tops are provided on wet, windy and cooler days. In the case of extreme weather, Total Fire Bans or high winds access to the tree lined river may be closed and very high river levels may make us postpone due to safety.

Please wear comfortable clothes that may get wet and are suitable for the weather conditions; thermals are preferable at colder times. Closed toe shoes such as runners are a must. A list is provided upon booking. Bring a change of dry clothes too!
Children between the ages of 6 and 13 years must be accompanied by a parent/guardian or older sibling/friend of 16 years and up on the water. For those between 14-16 years, a parent or guardian must be at the pick up and drop off points.
