This was a great time! Our guide was super nice. We even had an Australian Olympic ski team member on our tour. Really fun and night time views are amazing. A little difficult to find the wharf shed if you are not familiar with Melbourne.

Absolutely brilliant. Thanks Kent for a very enjoyable evening. We stopped along the way for fish and chips and then off we go again down the Yarra. At 8pm we were in our kayaks along side the casino watching the fireworks. Would highly recommend this tour to everyone. You don't need to be super fit to do this as you just go at your own pace. Kent gives you a lesson first on how to kayak and will always make sure you are ok along the way. We started in late afternoon and as you kayak down the Yarra you see the lights of Melbourne come on.

Fantastic way to see the City! I booked the night tour...lovely vista at sunset behind the bridge. They were heli-filming overhead... and the Crown had a wild fire display. Several kids in our group... start off paddling and steering through the Harbour...tied up for fish and chips... then down the Harrah River we went. Passed under many bridges and end up two hours later in the dark near Southgate. Awesom trip!

We were really lucky to have our own personal tour, as nobody else had booked. Very nice, informative tour guide. Amazing views of the city. Definitely highly recommended!

Kent was a great guide and knew what he was talking about. We had perfect weather, but be warned that there can be some windy parts of the river. We'd definitely go again!

A friend and I ended up having a private tour with Kent, due to poor forecast. We were given the option of postponing, but we went ahead. The weather held out, and we had a great time! Kent kept us informed of the different icons and points of interest along the way. Was at a cruisy pace, and we really enjoyed it.

Our guide (Matt I think) was brilliant. Very enthusiastic and helpful. He told us interesting stories about the city. He also gave a lot of help to a couple of people who were quite frankly useless at kayaking, meaning that the trip was kept to time and that everyone could enjoy it. This shows that people of all abilities can take part. Also included in the trip was fish and chips which wasn't mentioned when we booked the trip, so that was an added bonus and they were lovely! Brilliant fun and brilliant views of the city. We did the night time trip.

For someone who doesn't like water (like myself), I felt totally secure and thoroughly enjoy this tour. The tour guides were friendly and very helpful. It's a wonderful way to capture the beautiful Yarra River and the City.

Fantastic way to see Melbourne Docklands and the Yarra but not for everyone. You need to be relatively fit and active as you paddle the whole time except when eating amazing fish and chips. Matt our guide was very informative and easy to talk to. Only suggestion would be more signage at meeting point

This was a great evening- Kent was a great tour host and gave us just enough tips on kayaking without trying to turn us into experts!! The Yarra at night is stunning and we enjoyed being on the water as sun set and day changed to evening. The fish and chips were top class as well!! all in all I would recommend this a s a great thing to do in Melbourne for lots of people. You don't need to be an expert kayaker- just have a sense of fun and enjoy meeting other good people.

Fantastic opportunity to see the main sights of the Yarra and Melbourne. A well informed guide who certainly added his personal touch to this tour. Highlight was being able to sit out on the water while watching the Casino fire show, and the fish and chips- of course! Have, and will continue to recommend

Our kayak trip with Kent was a great introduction to Melbourne. We got off the plane, got settled, and went kayaking. Even though we were the only two people scheduled, he still took us out. It was our first time kayaking and he explained everything to us and helped us get going. What a fun way to see the city and get some exercise! Thanks Kent!
