We were in Australia for almost a month and This was one of our highlights. It's safe and easy to do. The kayaks are easy to get into. There are two guides with you and really get to see Melbourne from another angle. It was a Friday night and the bars were open along the river. People were even cheering... More

I had a friend visiting in Melbourne so was keen to do something different to show off this great city, then I stumbled across Kayak Melbourne - it was perfect! Kent was our guide, and even patiently waited for us since we turned up at the wrong dock which meant we were late getting to the right one. The kayaks... More

I did the moonlight tour and it was amazing. Great way to see the city from a different perspective. We paddled for about 2 hours including a stop for dinner (eaten in the kayaks). Kent and Rob were great guides and finishing to see the fire show made for a perfect evening. Book ahead as it fills up. Highly recommend.

Whilst I am a Melburnian, it's times like these when I do something in my own backyard, that makes me love it even more. I booked a tour for a Sunday night and went with my partner. We had such a great time. Starting off at Docklands, the tour goes through the usual safety and technique instruction before you get... More

My partner and I came to the evening kayak tour and we absolutely loved it! It was so fun, the owners / guides are amazing people, and we had an absolute blast getting on the river for sunset. I liked it so much that a couple weeks later I came out for a Sunday morning session where we did some... More

This was one of the best adventures of Melbourne I've ever experienced. We did the moonlight tour as a group and it was stunning to be quietly on the Yarra in the dark with the city lit up around us. Kent and Simon were great leaders and I will certainly be recommending this tour to friends.

Participated in the Moonlight Kayak tour last night. Kent was a great guide, starting from the safety/instructional briefing at the beginning through to the bits of info as we kayaked around the Bolte bridge and down the Yarra towards Fed Square. Was amazing to paddle down past Southbank with the Crown fire towers going off and the the lights of... More

We were lucky enough to have Kent guiding us around the waterways, and despite me growing up in Melbourne he was still able to teach us a thing or two about the heritage of the city! He made us feel at ease and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We would happily book again, and are looking forward to a possible... More

One of those incredible nights that you cherish in your memory forever. Tour guides Kent and Will could not have been more helpful and friendly whilst also looking out for the safety of the entire group. Perfect night. Great 'meals on water' (fish and chips delivered to us while sitting on the kayaks )

Kent and Will were our tour guided and did a great job. It was a lot of fun but also a lot of work if your novice paddlers as we were. We set the record for zig zagging the length of the river. About 2.5 hours including briefing and paddling. The lights of the city are really neat to see... More
