Want to see more of beautiful Tasmania by surfski? Our weekend Adventure Paddles will get you off the beaten “track”, broaden your horizons and develop your skills. Adventure Paddles are a fantastic way to see new sights and break out of the normal routine, with an emphasis on fun, safe and challenging downwind expeditions and open water trips. You’ll be surprised at some of these stunning paddling venues only a stones throw away from Hobart.
Adventure Paddles are run on a semi-regular basis according to weather forecast. We normally plan and communicate trip details 3-5 days out. Please contact us or check our Facebook page for up-to-date information prior to purchasing.
We recommend booking Adventure Paddles online to guarantee a place. We need all participants to confirm their participation the day before each trip.

Come with us down the eastern side of Bruny Island! Leaving from the Tinderbox boat ramp, we'll proceed across the d'Entrecasteaux Channel to Dennes Point before heading further south, navigating several reefs and surging cliff lines before making our way to the shelter of Bull Bay. From here we'll check out the southern side of the bay and land on the beach, if the point break is working we'll stay and play, otherwise we'll set sail for home! There will be plenty of waves on offer during this trip, with a distinctive ocean feel to the water even while close to shore and close to home. Depending on the final group there may be options for more advanced paddlers to extend this trip with a downwinder to Blackmans Bay, or for playing in the rebound chop off Piersons Point on the way back to the finish.
