What you can expect

This 2.5 hour Hobart city kayaking tour on stable kayaks allows you to experience the iconic waterfront of Tasmania's capital from an entirely different angle, as you're taken by expert guides on a journey from Sandy Bay past all the city's major seaside highlights. Take in unique views of multiple regional spots including the history-rich suburb of Battery Point, various wharves and overpasses and the Hobart Docks with their cavalcade of yachts and other vessels. Once arriving at the Harbour you'll disembark and enjoy a fresh batch of fish and chips straight from your kayak as you learn about the history and geography of the area from your friendly guide. With children and adults alike able to participate, and using only the highest quality kayaking gear - with no prior experience necessary - you'll have everything you need for a highly enjoyable multi-hour journey out on the water.

Between November and April tours depart twice daily at 10am and 2pm, and from May to October they run every Friday to Sunday at 10am. If you're looking for an alternative way to explore Hobart that provides a dose of fresh air, exercise and local insight all with some tasty food to cap things off, book yourself a Hobart kayaking tour online today!

The tour was amazing

The tour was amazing! My girlfriend and I had a really good time. It wasn't to long or to short, it was just perfect. Having fish and chips in the kayak was a fun experience. Our guide was really nice and we enjoyed hearing some facts and history about Hobart.
