Tour Description

Wander on water where the majestic cityscape looks over you, and the diamond waters sparkle and glow in the setting sun. 

Off The Beaten Track WA invites you to join us for a 2 hr guided kayak experience along the South Perth shoreline to explore the historic swan estuary as the sun goes down over the water and the city lights begin to glisten.

Leave the hiking boots at home and join us to wander on a waterway that comes to life with birds and fish as they feed before the sun disappears for the day and all of this beside a backdrop that is breathtakingly beautiful.

We’ll teach you all the basic paddling techniques before we set out on our city sunset tour.  Our completely stable kayaks will ensure your wander is wobble-free.  Suitable for beginner paddlers through to advanced.

Presenting Perth in its best light, this tour truly has the wow factor.

Off The Beaten Track WA provides a trained and experienced Guide/Host for our Hiking Experiences & Adventure Tours. We carry two-way communication devices, a personal location beacon when phone signal is not available and we’re a fully licensed, insured and accredited Western Australian tourism business providing hiking and adventure experiences with a twist!
