About Our Evening Kayaking Tour
This is a spectacular way to experience the sights of Melbourne from a unique water-level perspective. Melbourne’s Yarra River is an excellent location for new paddlers to experience evening kayaking for the first time, or for experienced kayakers to enjoy a stunning paddle through Melbourne’s scenic waterways. No kayaking experience is needed to enjoy the tour, as our patient guides will be with you every step of the way. We use a fleet of fibreglass Sea Bear sea kayaks, which are extremely stable and easy to operate.
Our evening tours in Melbourne meet just before sunset in Victoria Harbour, part of the modern Docklands precinct in the west end of the city. After a short safety briefing and paddling technique session on dry land, we set off for an exploration of the sights in Victoria Harbour before tying up to a dock in a beautiful marina. The guests stay seated in the boats and are served fish & chips for a very special on-the-water dining experience.
After our meal we continue our tour upstream, under the Bolte Bridge, embracing the city skyline as the day transitions into night. Kayaking through to Melbourne’s lively downtown, past Melbourne’s Tallship Polly woodside, Crown Casino and alongside stylish Southbank with stunning riverside and floating bars and restaurants. We continue past Flinders Street Railway Station and beneath historic Princes Bridge before arriving at the approach to Melbourne’s sporting precinct.
Our Melbourne night tour ends at the boat landing area at the Rowing Sheds, right in the heart of Melbourne, and directly across the river from Federation Square. What an incredible way to experience Melbourne!
