As complete beginners to kayaking, my husband and I were wondering how we would go on the Moonlight Kayak tour. From the beginning, Josh and Aiden were absolutely amazing and made us feel comfortable and relaxed. Our stop for dinner (delicious fish and chips) was a perfect way to have a chat about the surrounding area's history as the sun started to set. We then kayaked up to and under the Bolte bridge, before taking our time down the Yarra - an amazing view of Melbourne city, especially on a Saturday night. The kayaks were great and both my husband and I felt safe and stayed dry the whole time. We would highly recommend this tour!

A great way to see Docklands and the CBD from a different perspective. It was well organised very safe and you don’t need any paddling experience. The guides were very engaging and informative . It was very entertaining and great fun excellent value at would highly recommend for family groups or friends

We did this kayak tour with our 6 children aged 11-17 and they all loved it. Kent was fantastic in arranging it for us with our special requirements - especially dietary.
Our guide Mat was great and explained things really well. The city lighting up once the sun went down was spectacular and the view form down on the Yarra was fabulous. I would highly recommend this tour.

My husband, 3 teenage children & I really enjoyed the moonlight tour. Eating fish & chips for dinner sitting on the water in Docklands was a novelty. We loved paddling down the Yarra River as the sun went down and all the lights of the city started coming to life. It was an amazing sight, not hard work- relaxing & fun. Our guides, Paul & Mitch were both friendly & knowledgeable leaving us feeling confident the entire time.

Having lived in Melbourne most of my life I thought I'd seen the city and knew it well. Then I learnt I could see the city via a kayak, one of the best activities I've enjoyed this summer - a fun, entertaining and educational activity presented in an environment everyone will enjoy. Paul is full of information and I recommend everyone get out there and see Melbourne from the water surface with Kayak Melbourne.

Matt and Matt (experienced instructors) were great with their instructions and safety guidance before and when we were on the water and during. We had a big group of 13, all with varying skillsets, but everyone said how they enjoyed the experience of kayaking. Our arms were sore after and there were more clouds than we would have liked, but it was totally worth seeing the city in completely new light and perspective! Thanks to Kent for helping organise it all who was professional and prompt when booking the experience over the phone, and also gave us a small discount because we had a large group. Highly recommend this :)

I bought this as a present for a family member and we had a great time! I hadn't been kayaking before but our guide gave us some great tips and tricks and it was really easy. We did the sunset tour and the fading daylight and city light reflections on the water was stunning. Would 100% so it again and look into kayaking in general

I'm a local, I thoroughly enjoyed this trip-an amazing view of the city and great opportunity to see it from a different perspective. I did the sunset session, my favourite parts were the fish and chip dinner watching the sunset in the boat and the fire show at Crown. The guides were fantastic!

We had first kayak experience at Halong Bay, Vietnam before, but this is totally different one . A real kayak along the Yala River which has the magic, colorful scenes at its banks when sunset. We were specially impressed by the still and clean water, surely it is a place most suitable for kayak in the world and will be the most unforgettable memory to us. Our special thanks to Tom who gave his hand to us at the moment we need most. Thanks Australia, best wish for your people and Mother Nature!

Can't rave enough about this great kayak tour. City cruise on the waters of Docklands heading up to the city along the Yarra. After some instructions on kayaking and some delicious fish and chips, paddle out to Bolte Bridge and then up the Yarra. Instructors are knowledgable about goings on and points of interest along the way. Nice history lesson. Had an awesome time. Felt completely safe and you don't really get wet (just expect to). You could shove a camera in between your feet to keep dry or get a cheap wet-bag for $10 for photos. Unique views of the city via the Yarra and will definitely come back and recommend to friends. Thanks to Kent and all his team.
