Yes, but you do need to be able to swim! Our adventures are suitable for beginners to experienced paddlers. We provide the very best stable inflatable SUP’s and experienced guides to ensure your safety and enjoyment. Our guides will also give you a short lesson of standup paddling techniques at the beginning of your adventure.
Warmer weather Adventures: Oct-April
Our Wild Melbourne Sunrise Wildlife Adventure is relaxed and an easy paddle and the mountain biking is along easy to moderate tracks so suitable for all fitness levels. It is perfect if you have never paddled before or if you are unsure of your fitness for a full-day adventure.
On our full-day adventure, to enjoy your adventure, we recommend you have a moderate fitness level. If you occasionally play sport, walk or are somewhat active, you will love the day. Our Peninsula Paddle, Pinot & Pools includes Stand Up Paddleboarding in the ocean, as well as hiking along coastal nature trails to a breathtaking beach, with a break for lunch between locations.
Cooler Weather Adventures: June-Sept
Our Hot Springs Hikes & Humpbacks Adventure includes yoga at the Hot Springs as well as hiking along coastal nature trails to a breathtaking beach, with a break for lunch and whale spotting.
All Year Round Adventures:
For our Thrills Hills & Distills Adventure, you will enjoy mountain biking in Arthurs Seat National Park with trails for all levels. A moderate level of fitness is recommended to enjoy the day best.

You may also get wet if it is very windy or raining. We recommend you bring a change of clothes to change into after the adventure.
