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.

Follow the old apple trading route and explore one of southern Tasmania's rare downwind gems during this river-based trip! We'll set sail in northwesterly winds, enjoying an absolute paddling playground where the tannin-stained waters of the Huon River join the d'Entrecasteaux Channel, interacting unpredictably with the tide and current. This is windchop and tiderace central, with land and the main road immediately to our LHS throughout most of the trip. Paddlers should expect constant small, fast and choppy runs, colder water, and gusty conditions during the paddle. After getting dry and warm at the end of the trip, we'll head home via Woodbridge for some coffee and tasty treats at the local cafe, where many tall paddling tails will be told!
