Yarra River Tours

Kayak Melbourne!

Sea Kayaks are the perfect way to see the city differently! The Yarra River tour is the perfect day trip, departing from Melbourne CBD! Incorporating insights on local history, architecture, arts, flora and fauna, we can tailor this tour to suit your curriculum needs! Students will enjoy paddling past skyscrapers and under all these bridges they normally drive on!

Our Yarra River Tour runs downriver and begins at the front of the Rowing Boat Sheds to the east of Princes Bridge. Following our safety briefing, we will paddle paste Southgate's thriving restaurant and cafe precinct and discover the path of the early pioneers as we explore the Docklands precinct. The tour then takes us under the Westgate Bridge where you will understand the enormity of the construction before stopping off for refreshments at Docklands. We then return to our starting point.

  • Session 1 - Briefing on the Day's Tour

This trip allows you to become familiar with the Kayaks in an easy to paddle environment. It also allows us to evaluate your skill level if you are planning do more kayaking in the future. Coastline tours of Port Phillip Bay are also available.
