Participated in the Moonlight Kayak tour last night. Kent was a great guide, starting from the safety/instructional briefing at the beginning through to the bits of info as we kayaked around the Bolte bridge and down the Yarra towards Fed Square. Was amazing to paddle down past Southbank with the Crown fire towers going off and the the lights of... More

We were lucky enough to have Kent guiding us around the waterways, and despite me growing up in Melbourne he was still able to teach us a thing or two about the heritage of the city! He made us feel at ease and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We would happily book again, and are looking forward to a possible... More

One of those incredible nights that you cherish in your memory forever. Tour guides Kent and Will could not have been more helpful and friendly whilst also looking out for the safety of the entire group. Perfect night. Great 'meals on water' (fish and chips delivered to us while sitting on the kayaks )

Kent and Will were our tour guided and did a great job. It was a lot of fun but also a lot of work if your novice paddlers as we were. We set the record for zig zagging the length of the river. About 2.5 hours including briefing and paddling. The lights of the city are really neat to see... More

We went on the moonlight tour for my boyfriend's 25th birthday and it was just as amazing/better than i expected! The arms and core got a workout (but anyone can do it at their own pace), the views were unbelievable and the staff (mark and kent) were soooo lovely! The fish and chips also made for a yummy and appropriate... More

We had a great time exploring Melbourne on the Kayak. It's a very different experience! Kayak Melbourne was definitely a great choice for this.

Our travel agent booked this tour and our daughters aged 11 and 14 were moaning beforehand at the prospect of kayaking on the river in Melbourne. Within 30 seconds of the intro by Kent and Will, they were enthusiastic and we had the most marvellous evening. The paddling is not strenuous at all and the views are simply unique. Melbourne...

We did the evening kayak tour around the harbour, out to the bridge and along the river and back in time to see the fireballs at the casino. It was a great evening. We were a large group with a range of ages and levels of experience, and we all enjoyed ourselves. Highly recommended. (Thanks for answering all my questions... More

Kayaking along the Yarra River was an excellent way to see the city from a completely different viewpoint. Matt, our guide, gave good clear instructions how to use the equipment and was informative and enthusiastic throughout the two hour tour. It was brilliant to kayak down through a busy buzzing city, and still experience peace and tranquility of being on... More
