I was given this experience as a gift and was not disappointed. It was a unique opportunity to see Docklands up close and paddle past some amazing super yachts. The Fish and Chips were absolutely delicious. Then we saw an amazing sunset and paddled down the Yarra with the lights from the city reflecting off the water. Our guides were... More

3 friends and I treated ourselves to this tour to celebrate our 40th birthday's. Our guides Matt and Mark very friendly, informative and helpful. The experience was fantastic, and they made everything easy and enjoyable for us. We were worried about getting into the kayak's, but it was super easy, and the kayaking itself was really easy and relaxing. Great... More

This is an amazing,, unique way of viewing the city. Who else can really say they ate dinner in a kayak whilst watching the sunset then travelled down the river. Great to find something different to do in Melbourne. https://theeighthours.wordpress.com/2015/03/18/melbourne-moonlight-kayak-tour/

We went on a group trip on a glorious summer evening to kayak up the Yarra. I was a bit concerned being extremely unfit but the kayaking was actually pretty straightforward and you actually go at a very nice pace and have a chance to take in the city around you. The guides were local and very knowledgeable about the... More

Awesome time. Bike tour G8 way to see C B D. Guide Mark is special. Do the morning tour cause of the heat. Moonlight kayak tour a gem. Kayaks very stable an easy to paddle. Felt like coming into Venice as we paddled up the Yarra river. Ask Kent to pick you up as it's hard to find. Transit bar... More

Fantastic evening kayaking through the CBD. Lovely touch having dinner in our kayak. Tour guides were brilliant. Extremely friendly and encouraging. Seriously anyone can do this tour. I took my 70year old mother and she loved it. Would highly recommend and happily go again.

Absolutely fantastic experience kayaking on the Yarra in the early evening. The two guides were well prepared and professional and made the experience one to remember. The length of time was just enough and the sights from the water were unbelievable. I would recommend this experience, if you are considering something slightly different when visiting Melbourne.

It didn't matter what you ability to paddle a Kayak, you were well looked after. The views were great and there was no rush at all. Sights were explained and opportunity given to photograph.
