Great morning in Hobart ! Easy paddling to enjoy with the family. Thanks very much for giving us the opportunity to have a different experience

Julie R March 2020

This was fantastic!! I couldn't recommend highly enough. I was lucky enough to have a one on one on the day and the tour guide was excellent. I had never done it before but is something that appealed to me as a hobby. I got lots of great advice and can't wait to buy my own and get paddling!!

From the phone call to get directions to our fantastic guide Dan, we loved every moment of this experience! What a great way to see Hobart. Thankyou!

Sam L February 2018

Very manageable tour for those wanting something active but not too strenuous, and seeing the sights of the harbor rather than a wilderness area was a different way to enjoy kayaking. Our guide, Will, was excellent!

Rachel M January 2018

Great experience well worth it to see such pretty coast line

This was another great experience in Hobart. We had a beautiful morning weather wise to paddle around the harbor. Roaring 40s Kayaking is a family owned business and they were wonderful. We spent about 2 1/2 hours paddling. There was a wooden boat festival the following weekend, so we were treated to some spectacular boats sailing by us. The view of Hobart from the water is special and our guide had lots of hints about things to do once our tour was over. It was fun eating a fish and chips lunch delivered to us in our boats. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone. I have kayaked in the past but because of the tandem kayaks, I think it would be fine for most people even without experience.

Lei Z April 2016

Great experience. it is my first time to do Kayak, it is fantastic. Jenny, the leader, is professional, skillful and friendly. It is really a great experience.

Katherine S December 2015

Tony was my guide and we had fun. He made it enjoyable for sure.

Kaitlin A November 2014

This tour was the highlight of my few days in Hobart. Kayaking was a great way to explore the harbour, and I thought the quality of instruction was really good. The guide (Reg) was really friendly, chatted with us along the way, and took a few photos which he emailed to us later. We paddled right up to a floating fish and chips stand, had fish and chips carefully lowered down to us, and then ate it in our kayaks, which was really charming. The tour was not at all strenuous, so I think almost anybody would be fit enough to go. Next time I am in Hobart I am definitely going to look into one of their longer tours!
