We had an awesome day on the river. Sea Kayak Australia is one of the only companies in Melbourne that allows you to paddle without a guide, if that is what you are looking for. Great great, friendly staff, reasonable prices and excellent all-round services....More

Hi Sarah thanks for the review. Seeing Melbourne by river, especially just below Dights falls - Abbotsford, is like being out the country. If you get the chance come on a guided tour out in the bay.

Really excellent way to see a Melbourne city from a different angle, the river! The evening was a bit showery but we were given all the gear necessary to keep us safe and warm. Would suit those with no canoeing experience at all as well...More

I am glad you enjoyed the tour. Melbourne looks delightful at twilight. Come again and bring some friends for this or others tour that we offer in the ocean e.g. St Kilda or Phillip Island.

I am glad you had a good time. The city is great at night with the light reflections and kayaking as a relaxed way of seeing the world. Please come again and try out another tour like Phillip Island Sea Kayak Tour
