About
Nestled between river and mountain, Hobart has one of the most picturesque harbours in the world. Join this 2.5-hour city paddle and go behind the scenes of this vibrant, working waterfront to discover the true heart of Hobart. Glide past prestigious homes perched along the edge of Hobart’s oldest suburb, marvel at Hobart’s wooden tall sailing ships, keep an eye out for Sammy the resident seal, hope for a pod of dolphins, peer through crystal-clear water at native sea stars, perhaps get up close and personal with a giant cruise ship, and take photos of Hobart from a rarely seen perspective. Your expert guides will share paddling tips and information about the region throughout your adventure.

First time experience - kayaking
Apr 2021 • Couples
We really enjoyed this experience - it was fantastic and Tim our guide was pleasant, friendly, informative, at times funny and safety conscious. The equipment provided was all in good shape and the kayaking trip was very scenic, not too strenuous and fun. A great way to spend 2.5hrs in the open air. Thank you

Adventure on the water
Mar 2021
I enjoyed my kayaking around Hobart dock and I say Damien is really good guide who looks after all his Kayakers and helps them trough out the struggle in water. Friendly and very knowledgeable about history of Tasmania. Similarly, enjoyed fish and chips and a chat for a while on the water. If you are doing your first kayaking or want your self to practice more its a place I would suggest..... Loved it

Had a fun few hours on the water with Damo as our awesome guide. Easy to follow Damo's instructions, a good time was has by our group and would highly recommend. Who could have thought you could eat fish and chips whilst sitting in your kayak.

Fantastic to hear you enjoyed your kayaking on the Hobart waterfront with Damo. For some reason the fish and chips taste even better when enjoyed from a kayak :) Thanks for the review and for paddling with us. Hope to see you again one day. Cheers

Great morning paddle and fresh fish snack!
Feb 2021 • Couples
A really lovely morning out with Lachie taking us on the tour. You get a really different perspective of the harbour and Hobart from being on the water. Was a tough (but manageable) paddle back to the beach when the wind picked up, plenty of wet faces!

Great family activity
Jan 2021 • Family
Melzi took our family of 3, including a 9 year old, on a lovely tour of Hobart Harbour. She went in a double kayak with our son and was very patient and encouraging. We enjoyed the chips on the water and the interesting information a lot, but appreciated her positive, professional and friendly leadership.

Thanks, Melzi!
