Entirely different to the traditional urban experience, the City Sights Kayak Tour leads you along the picturesque passage of the Yarra River and right into the heart of Melbourne.

Before you get started, you will be given an introductory paddling lesson to show you the ropes. Then, under the watchful eye of an experienced guide, you will take to the water to begin your aquatic adventure.

Heading downriver, you will cruise past the renowned Federation Square and Flinders Street Station, before drifting in to the waterside metropolis of the Docklands. Here you will enjoy a short break, while your guide will explain the history of what was once Melbourne’s largest and busiest port.

Next, you will venture upstream, gliding peacefully past the Crown Casino and the hustle and bustle of the South Bank. Here you have the perfect opportunity to soak up the sights and sounds of this much loved city, all from the sanctuary of your kayak.

The tour draws to a close at Boathouse Drive, where you will return to the riverbank and climb ashore.
Thanks to the Yarra’s gentle conditions, the City Sights Kayak Tour is perfect for all the family. No previous paddling experience is necessary.

“So glad I decided to book the Kayak tour. Kent, Dave, Sarah and Gina were all really friendly and gave us plenty of information about the local area and a little bit of architectural/structural transformations along the Yarra River. The trip was awesome and I would definitely recommend to others and hope to do it again myself!”
