Perfect day for this amazing trip along Hobart coastline with Josh and Reg. My friend and I really enjoyed everything on the water, the food, the paddling, the breeze and view, everything. Thanks Josh and Reg for giving us such amazing memories.

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