The Yarra River runs right through the heart of Melbourne and some of the best views of the city are from the water. On this tour, enjoy a fun alternative to a river cruise and paddle your way through Melbourne on a kayak. Glide around Victoria Harbour, the Southbank, and the Docklands; tuck into a fish and chips dinner; and watch the sunset over the city.
What to Expect
Make your way to the marina to meet your guide and hop aboard your kayak. After a safety briefing and a short practice session, set out on your evening cruise around the city.

Paddle along the Yarra River, past the high-rise buildings of the Docklands, the stylish Southbank, and the luxury yachts of Victoria Harbour. Stop along the way to enjoy a special dinner of fish and chips, served to you as you sit in your kayak on the marina, and gaze out across the water as you tuck in.

Continue upstream, paddling under the Bolte Bridge and pausing to watch the ‘fireball’ display at the Crown Casino (depending on schedules). Spot landmarks including the Flinders Street Railway Station and the Princes Bridge, on the way to your final stop, the rowing sheds opposite Federation Square—a scenic spot from which to watch the sunset over downtown Melbourne.

Sunset Kayak

We are local to Melbourne, and really enjoyed this kayak. Seeing Melbourne from a different view. Paul was a great guide giving history of the area we kayaked through. Seeing the fire burns at the Crown from the river was fabulous.
