    What to Expect
    When booking, select the Hobart kayak tour that matches your interests and how much time you want to be on the water.

    For a short experience in central Hobart, select the 2.5-hour city tour, which takes you along the Derwent Estuary, providing unique views of city landmarks and attractions like Battery Point. Take the 7-hour cliffs, caves and beaches tour for a beautiful experience among rugged cliffs, sea caves, sandy shores and other coastal scenery. Or, for the longest time on the water, choose the 10-hour Tasman Peninsula tour, which gives you the chance to spot wildlife like wildlife fur seals, dolphins, sea eagles and penguins; this tour requires a good level of fitness.

    Each tour includes use of equipment (kayak, paddle, life jacket and spray jacket) and instruction from your guide. Read the Itinerary section for more details about the three different options.

    Our guide Tory was helpful, enthusiastic and very well informed out Hobart harbor. Although the weather was a bit cold and windy, the provided jackets and spray skirts kept us warm and dry. A great morning on the water.
