Hobart's iconic waterfront from a different perspective. Nestled between river and mountain, Hobart has one of the most picturesque harbours in the world. Join our two-and-a-half-hour city paddle and we'll take you 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, hear stories of the historic Battery Point, 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 discovery of Hobart wouldn't be complete without some locally caught fish and chips from the city's famed floating fish punts. Enjoy them with the best view in town - straight from your kayak! No paddling experience is necessary, and this paddle is suitable for younger paddlers who can team up with an adult or one of our guides.
