Join Sea Kayak Australia and get up and close to yachts, ferries and ships while taking in views of Victoria Harbour, South Bank and Westgate Bridge.

Paddling in the afternoon or at twilight is a great way to unwind after work or other commitments. Relax while taking in city views from the waters edge. First paddle around the Docklands taking in the features of the former port like the old sailing ship the Alma Doepel.

Then paddle up the Yarra River into the city, past the Mission for Seaman building, former Customs House, old Yarra River turning basin and water fall. Historical commentary on the old docks area is provided along the way. The tour then returns and at the conclusion why not visit one of the many Dockland restaurants.

This tour is a sampler of what sea kayaking is like without getting too tired but still having fun. Snacks and refreshments included.
