Kayaking by moonlight is a spectacular way to experience Melbourne from a unique water-level perspective. Melbourne's Yarra River is an excellent location for new paddlers to experience kayaking for the first time or for experienced kayakers to enjoy a stunning paddle through Melbourne's scenic waterways. No kayaking experience is needed to enjoy the tour, our patient guides will be with you every step of the way. We use a fleet of fibreglass Sea Bear sea kayaks, which are extremely stable and easy to operate.

The tour meets just before sunset in Victoria Harbour, part of the modern Docklands precinct in the west end of the city.  After a short safety briefing and paddling technique session on land we set off for an exploration of the sights in Victoria Harbour before tying up to a dock in a beautiful marina.  The guests stay seated in the boats and are served fish n chips for a very special on-the-water dining experience.

After our meal, we continue our tour upstream, under the Bolte Bridge and through to Melbourne's lively downtown.  Kayaking past the Crown Casino and alongside stylish South bank. We continue past Flinders Street Railway Station and beneath historic Princes Bridge before arriving at the approach to Melbourne's sporting precinct.  Enjoy the sights and sounds from your unique vantage point as the sun goes down and the city comes to life.

Our tour ends at the boat landing area at the Rowing Sheds, right in the heart of Melbourne, and directly across the river from Federation Square.  What an incredible way to experience Melbourne!


Meet on the wharf, at Shed 2 Victoria Harbour Promenade, Docklands. The tour ends at the Parks Victoria landing at the rowing sheds directly across the Yarra from Federation Square. 


Bookings are available all year round. We need a minimum of 4 people for the tour to run.


What to bring:
