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.

My wife and I very much enjoyed the Hobart Kayak Tour which was superbly led by 'Reg' and Hayley with expert guidance and interesting facts and stories. This was a great introduction to kayaking and it was very interesting to see Hobart from a different perspective. Highly recommended.

What a fantastic family experience in the school holidays! We’re locals but had never seen the Hobart docks from this view before. Our guides Jon and Jonah were excellent! They had interesting stories to tell about the buildings and the history of the local waterfront. My kids had an absolute ball and want to do it again!

This tour was amazing and I loved every minute! I had never been in a kayak before but it made no difference as I picked it up with expert guidance. Our guides were brilliant, friendly, organised and highly professional and knowledgeable. A really relaxing way to explore and the fish and chips were great too. I would definitely do it again. Thanks so much for a wonderful experience!

Allie was a fantastic guide who led our novice group through the waves with no issues. She was calm and reassuring with the one member of the family who was a little anxious (i.e. me 😊) and we all had a fantastic time. I would recommend this tour to all abilities and would definitely do it again if I had the opportunity.

My partner and I really enjoyed our kayaking experience. The guides were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and made us feel really comfortable given we had little kayaking experience. It was a great way to see Hobart from a different perspective and we are keen to try other Roaring 40s tours!
