Why take this tour?

Nestled between river and mountain, Hobart has one of the most picturesque harbours in the world. Join this 2.5-hour city paddle and go behind the scenes of this vibrant, working waterfront to discover the true heart of Hobart. Glide past prestigious homes perched along the edge of Hobart’s oldest suburb, marvel at Hobart’s wooden tall sailing ships, keep an eye out for Sammy the resident seal, hope for a pod of dolphins, peer through crystal-clear water at native sea stars, perhaps get up close and personal with a giant cruise ship, and take photos of Hobart from a rarely seen perspective. Your expert guides will share paddling tips and information about the region throughout your adventure.
