We had a great time kayaking along the yarra river, gives a difference perspective of Melbourne city even to locals. Started with a short brief on safety and how to kayak then off we went. We were very lucky that it didn't rain as forecasted. I was a little disappointed that we did not stop for a snack at a... More

Hi thanks for your comments. Stopping for views for the sunset are difficult for us and we only have permission to stop at 2 floating pontoons, the rest are privately owned. Views of the sunset are best on the water, as city building can obstruct line of site. The "fire balls" at the crown Casino go off every hour after... More

IT was a great course, the instructors were professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. Balance between theory and practice was just right. THe location is terrific, in wonderful st Kilda, with paddling up to port Melbourne and views of the city. Highly recommended course!

This was a well run sea kayak adventure. They cant control the weather but all other facets are well managed. The 3 day tour to Wilsons Prom took us to a great quiet location of natural beauty.

Had a lovely afternoon paddling down the river in a double kayak. Make sure to bring bottled water, sunnies and lather up on the sunscreen! Took approx 2.5hrs to get to Herring Island (due to bad steering!) but much faster on the return once we swapped seats! Bit tiring, but quite relaxing nonetheless. Thanks David, we had a great time!

Sea Kayaking is a fantastic alternative way to explore Melbourne, from a different perspective, while having loads of laughs and lots of fun. The tour was well organised and exceptionally helpful.

Had a one-on-one day with Dane covering all aspects of the 2 day Introduction to Sea Kayaking. I certainly enjoyed the experience and appreciated Dane's encouragement and patience as he shared his expertise. I learnt many new aspects of kayaking and everything was well organised. I'm looking forward to putting the training into practice.

Thank Russell M

Well done on finishing the course and now the next step is to get out on the water and practise. Don't forget you have a free 1/2 days hire of a single kayak down the Yarra River. More
