Had a fantastic time with our excellent guides from Roaring40s Kayaking. Flew in to Melaleuca then paddled Bathurst Channel/Harbour then Port Davey. Top quality gear provided, great food. Beautiful scenery. A highly recommended adventure.

We went kayaking along the docks of Hobart and had a wonderful time. We can’t recommend them enough! Our guide Reg was excellent. Another bonus was having fish and chips in our kayaks.

Agree best to ask Roaring 40s directly. I suspect most of the tours would still be available but subject to weather conditions.
