Overview
The Yarra River, which runs right through the heart of Melbourne, offers some of the best views of the city. On this tour, enjoy a fun alternative to a river cruise and paddle your way through Melbourne on a kayak. Glide around Victoria Harbour, Southbank, and the Docklands; tuck into a fish and chips dinner; and watch the sunset over the glittering city.
Highlights
  • Enjoy a crowd-free tour of Melbourne and the Yarra River—from a kayak
  • Spot top landmarks and watch the sunset over Melbourne from the water
  • Enjoy a genuine fish and chips dinner served to you right on the water
  • No experience necessary—tour includes full instruction and all equipment
What to Expect
Make your way to the Melbourne marina to meet your guide. After gearing up and having a safety briefing and short practice session, hop aboard your kayak and set out on your evening cruise around the city. Paddle along the Yarra River, past the high-rise buildings of the Docklands, 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. Continue upstream, paddling under the Bolte Bridge and pausing to watch the pyrotechnics display at Crown Casino (depending on schedules). Spot city 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.
