Glide under fishing wharves before entering the bustling Hobart docks area. Get up close to sleek yachts, elegant tall ships, working fishing boats, modern cruisers and possibly even a cruise ship.

Pip was an excellent guide. Gave us a thorough safety and how-to-kayak talk, but got us quickly on the water. As we paddled, she gave us a good overview of the history of Hobart, as well as some interesting highlights. She also had a range of sauces for the fish and chips we had in the kayaks! For a great time on the water with an easy pace, I’d thoroughly recommend this tour to everyone!

We had a fantastic morning seeing Hobart port from the water. It was a relaxing paddle from Sandy Bay to Constitution Dock. The guides gave just the right amount of commentary about the history, wildlife and recent additions to the harbour side. We stopped for fish and chips, which are included in the price and they were delicious. Would thoroughly recommend this tour.
