Overview

Explore Hobart from the water on a kayak tour with an experienced guide. You have three options to choose from when booking: a 2.5-hour tour from central Hobart, a 7-hour tour past cliffs, caves and beaches or a 10-hour Tasman Peninsula tour.

Learn paddling techniques from your guide, who also provides narration about the city and surrounding region.

Dan and Lachie were very professional and friendly guides. They explained everything with a little humour which put the group at ease. They shared a little interesting history and information about the docks and shoreline. Nothing was too much trouble for them to help with.

This was fantastic!! I couldn't recommend highly enough. I was lucky enough to have a one on one on the day and the tour guide was excellent. I had never done it before but is something that appealed to me as a hobby. I got lots of great advice and can't wait to buy my own and get paddling!!

Very manageable tour for those wanting something active but not too strenuous, and seeing the sights of the harbor rather than a wilderness area was a different way to enjoy kayaking. Our guide, Will, was excellent!
