Hire a single sea kayak for a day and paddle along the Yarra river in safety. No waves, wind or tide flows to concern you. See the landscape from the waters edge; a great and relaxing way to spend a day. There is lots of bush land for the first 6km - you would not know you are in the city! Pass the Collingwood Children's farm, Abbotsford Convent, CUB Brewery, old grand houses along the river bank in Kew, Hawthorn and South Yarra.
Includes: 1 single kayak, paddle, bouyancy vest, dry bag, map and instructions are provided on the land before you head onto the water.
Bring your own lunch, stop at a cafe along the way or have a BBQ on Herring Island.
The launching place is 300m from the kayak collection point in Abbotsford and a trolleys is provided for ease of transporting the kayak.
This is a self guided tour, so go at your own pace. Once you have had enough, stop and rest then turn around and paddle back to the start.
The hire can be for 3 to 8 hours in duration. It takes approximately 3 hours to paddle into the city, one way from the start point (with out rest) or 4 hours stopping off for rest/lunch.
The kayak can also be taken away to the ocean and brought back.
Ideal gift for someone who likes a relaxed and non structured adventure.
