  • Description

    The Paddle Adventure Experience on the Yarra River is an action packed half day of kayaking on Grade 1 & 2 white water.

    • 1-2 person kayaks or inflatable rafts
    • Full instruction from qualified guides
    • Less than 1 hour drive from Melbourne CBD

    After a gear & safety brief and car shuttle, it’s time to hit the river and embark on a 1.5hr journey through some of the most scenic sections of the Yarra Valley River. On the first flat-water section of the river you will learn how to steer the boats and who to splash or avoid! This prepares you for the rapids that lie ahead.

    The Yarra meanders through bush land of the Yarra Valley. During the day there is the possibility of seeing a range of wildlife on the river banks including Kangaroo’s, wallabies, echidna or a Koala. Sometimes we have even seen wildlife in the river including platypus, eels and there are always many water birds.

    White water kayaking on the Yarra was truly awesome. Would definitely recommend it to others and will go back again.

    I would like to comment that Barbie was an absolute delight as our instructor - she has a great manner, with the perfect balance of professionalism and geniality. She made us feel confident and assured - we had a very fun day thanks to her.

    Our kayaking experience with Kathryn was a fantastic half day adventure. She was warm and engaging right from the start and gave us great confidence even though we had little kayaking experience. She gave us a really informative commentary about the river and it’s wildlife, and we would highly recommend this experience.
