Pedal Kayak Tours

A new approach to kayaking!

If you're looking for an innovative approach to Sea Kayaking, where your students can learn a new skill while having tremendous amounts of fun, look no further!

The Pedal Kayak tours can incorporate History, Environmental, Marine, or Flora & Fauna talks, to suit your curriculum, and can be run at any of our locations: Portsea, Hastings, Ricketts Point, or even on the Yarra River!

The Pedal Kayak Tour is perfect for younger age groups, or for groups that would like a different type of Sea Kayaking tour. Its a two hour kayak experience where students can pedal or paddle. The kayak vessel is a Hobie Mirage Driven Kayak, on which students can choose to pedal or paddle! And if very well coordinated, why not try both at the same time?

The Hobie Mirage Drive boats are all equipped with the patented Mirage Drive pedal system making it easier to participate if you have not kayaked before and a great activity for everyone!

Students pedal by stepping alternately left and right, not unlike an exercise stepper, to drive two underwater flippers. They work much like a penguin's fins to propel the Hobie Mirage with surprising speed and ease. All of which lets you go into kayaking. Feet first.
