Winter Kayaking Tours

Winters in Hobart can be crisp, but they can also be clear with calm waters and stunning beauty. We offer half-day and full-day sea kayaking tours on demand throughout winter with a minimum of 2 people. Choose from one of our listed day tours, or we can customise a half-day or full-day trip especially for you. Of course, we also supply waterproof clothing to keep you warm for your winter kayaking experience.  Contact us on 0455 949 777 or for more information.

Our scheduled day tours begin again in November and are available online now for bookings.

Why "Roaring 40°s Kayaking"?

The Roaring 40°s are the westerly winds associated with the latitudes of approximately 40 degrees in the southern hemisphere and the predominant trade winds in Tasmania. These winds blow mostly during spring, and to a lesser extent, autumn. They have influenced the entire island of Tasmania and have created some of the most spectacular and unique habitat on earth, including Tasmania's Wilderness World Heritage listed rainforests and buttongrass moorlands. Old sailing ships used the Roaring 40°s to make fast passages to and from Australia.
