Thank you for the great review! We're so glad you enjoyed your tour despite the conditions. Tassie weather likes to throw anything everything at us but that doesn't mean you can't still get amongst it! Cheers

Well organised, provided all the wet weather gear, great for beginners. Tour guide Hayley was well informed around Hobart history. The fish and chips on board the kayaks was easy and a great little twist to a normal tour. Overall awesome experience!

I really enjoyed this kayak trip exploring Hobart waterfront. The equipment was good quality and the guide was very professional and informative. It was lovely to see Hobart from the water and mount Wellington. The fish and chips were delicious!! Good fun.
