Hobart Kayak Tour: This is a 2.5-hour kayaking tour of Hobart's picturesque harbour and working waterfront. You’ll glide past prestigious homes, get up close to Hobart’s wooden tall sailing ships, peer through crystal-clear water at native sea stars. We’ll also paddle past any visiting cruise ships when they are in, and think of the photo opportunities of Hobart from this unique perspective.
If the paddle gods are shining on us we may spot Sammy the resident seal and pod of dolphins that call this area home.
We conclude the kayak tour with some of Hobart’s locally caught fish and chips from the city’s famed floating fish punts. Enjoy them with the best view in town – straight from your kayak!
This Hobart Kayak Tour requires no kayaking experience and is suitable for younger paddlers who can team up with an adult or one of our guides.
