Melbourne City Sights Kayak Tour
From US$60.11
Get a different perspective at Melbourne’s iconic sights on a kayak tour along the Yarra River. Leave from Federation Square and paddle past popular sights such as Princes Bridge, Flinders Street Station, Crown Casino, and the Docklands district. Take in the beautiful city skyline and enjoy a relaxing day on the river on this 2-hour tour, perfect for all ages and skill levels.
What to Expect
Meeting across the river from Federation Square in the centre of Melbourne, this tour gives you a unique water-level view of the amazing city skyline.  After a quick briefing and paddling lesson, participants will get kitted up and head downriver under the Princes Bridge and into the heart of Melbourne. The tour will continue along the Yarra River past Flinders Station and up to the iconic Polly Woodside Tallship at South Wharf before entering the Docklands precinct and the beautiful Yarra’s Edge Marina. After a short break the paddlers then head back upstream past Crown Casino and the lively South Bank district before finishing back at Boathouse Drive.
This tour is an appropriate length for younger paddlers who can team up with Mum or Dad or one of our guides.  With a fleet of extremely stable Sea Bear sea kayaks, the experience will be even easier for first-time paddlers.
