Gday HappyFamilyActivity, It is a great paddle so close to Hobart. The little nooks and crannies are a great spot for lunch. Happy you had a great time with our kayaking crew. Hope to see you on the water again sometime. Cheers Damo

The calm of Fortescue Bay as we set off masked the challenge of the sea ahead. A good taste of what sea kayaking should be -bit of salt, bit of wind, a bit of choppy sea. Add in seeing the Totem Pole and the Candlestick...More

So much fun paddling around the Sydney to Hobart yachts in the Hobart harbour, and even more exciting when you get to one cross the finishing line. Great timing and fantastic to hear you enjoyed your experience. Look forward to seeing you again one day.

Agree best to ask Roaring 40s directly. I suspect most of the tours would still be available but subject to weather conditions.
