We really enjoyed the night tour! We were able to see Melbourne through a different light, all while being active. The lights were beautiful.

The moonlight tour was fantastic, a brilliant way to see Melbourne. I went with my husband and my parents, suitable for all fitness levels and the tuition was much appreciated as we were all complete novices. Thank you Kent!

As you cruise over Bolte Bridge on the Skybus, you'll be able to turn to your neighbour and mention that you have paddled underneath it. When you're passing by the casino, you can mention... More

Thanks Kent for a fantastic afternoon on the water. Emma and I had a terrific time seeing Melbourne from a completely different perspective. The activity ran like clockwork, the paddling technique was well explained and then we were able to get out onto the river in no time at all. I'd thoroughly recommend this to anyone else looking for a... More

Our moonlight kayak experience was amazing! To see so many Melbourne land marks in the twilight and moonlight, meet some very special people, have some gentle exercise, have some other special surprises led by a caring and thoughtful guide (Kent) all the same time was one of the great highlights of our visit to Melbourne, couldn't have been better!!

What a trip!! A great way to see the city as the sun goes down - the moonlight kayak tour was great. Kent makes the evening fun & informative, and makes everyone feel safe and capable from start to finish. There is good instruction on kayaking basics for beginners, and tips along the way. The fish & chips were a... More
