The tour meets just before sunset in Victoria Harbour, part of the modern Docklands precinct in the west end of the city. After a short safety briefing and paddling technique session on dry land set off for an exploration of the sights in Victoria Harbour before tying up to a dock in a beautiful marina. The guests stay seated in the boats and are served fish n chips for a very special on-the-water dining experience. (Can provide vegetarian and gluten free options if needed).

    This was a surprise for my partner’s birthday, arranged by old friends. Wasn’t properly dressed and didn’t know what to expect, but what a pleasant surprise! Guides were great - just the right blend of instruction, information and guidance - relaxed and good to chat to as well. Special shout-out to Angus and Rick. Interesting and involving way to view Melbourne’s various skylines, from Victoria Harbour, Bolte Bridge, South Wharf, Crown, Flinders Street Station and Fed Square. Learned new skills as well as enjoying a light workout. Mild winter’s evening, got splashed a bit (probably because of my deficient technique) but a terrific experience overall. I recommend this to everyone - tourists and locals alike. Only things I’d suggest as improvements are slightly smaller groups (our group got strung out and delayed because of varying degrees of competency) and the inclusion of transport back to the starting point where our cars were parked. This was a 95/100 experience, so 5 stars all the way.

    Our guides were fun, helpful, knowledgeable and great to banter with. The scenery and the general experience of kayaking along the Yarra, including under the Bolte Bridge, left our family in awe!! Eating our fish and chips dinner in our kayaks just added to the novelty and fun, while we chatted to others in our group. Simply one of the best family experiences we've shared. Thank you so much!

    I have been living in Melbourne for 4 years and this is hands down my favorite tour i've done. Will be bringing all friends and family to go! They provide all the gear, waterproof bags, splash guard and waterproof jacket so you are kept warm (I went in Winter!). The view is one i've never experienced before, such a good way to see a city!

    Absolutely loved this tour. Our instructors Aidan and Imad were so good. They made sure we were all comfortable and relaxed. We were given safety gear, instructions and waterproof gear. Maybe a few larger sizes might be good to have on hand. Not the fault of the kayaking company, but we wanted to see Crown Casino’s fire display from the water, but due to climate regulations, they were switched off. We were given some dinner and diet restrictions were catered to. An amazing experience. Anyone new to kayaking would truly love this experience too! The city views were AMAZING- the weather helped a lot in this!

    My expectations were exceeded. I am a Melbourne Docklands local resident that wanted to see the river and city from a different angle, and I was not disappointed. The guides were delightful, fun, well informed, respectful and good company. We were provided with a splash-proof light jacket plus a comfortable 'life jacket'. The kayaks were for two people and easy to maneuvre. Victoria Harbour and the Bolte Bridge look pretty spectacular when the sun sets, as does the night-lit city as you move upstream. One couple could not manage their kayak so one of our fit guides towed them for part of the way. My group of 5 adults had a ball, and I would repeat the experience again in a heartbeat!

    We got the gathering point wrong, but organizers contacted us and guided to the right location. We started late, but it was perfect in every inch!

    The two guides were awesome fun, full of facts, and very funny. The kayaks easy to use, well maintained clean and perfect for beginners. The scenery from the water at night is spectacular, it is so very pretty. We Loved the experience and plan to take some friends with us next time. Thankyou 💕

    This was a fun, unique way to see Melbourne from the river. The kayak was easy to operate, though of course required some effort to paddle. A solid workout! The fish and chips dinner was pretty simple (my husband said it was like a kids meal) and we ate right in our kayaks towards the start of the experience. With two guides in our group, we felt cared for though it did also feel like we were being herded around a bit. Our lead guide pointed out landmarks and talked about the city's history as we went which was insightful. One surprise was that we ended the tour in a different place than we started. It wasn't a big problem for us - we hadn't driven to the starting point - but I feel like that should be more clearly stated when registering.
