Canning River

Wetlands Kayak Tour

Tour Duration: 3 hours
Tour Time:

Morning (afternoons on request)

Activity Rating: Easy
Max Group Size: up to 16.
Tour Landmarks:

Riverton Bridge, Canning River Wetlands Regional Park, Kent Street Weir

We meet and launch near the Canning River Bridge in Riverton and paddle slowly into the wetlands area. Here we take the time to enjoy the birdlife that live, hunt and breed in this unique regional park and learn a little of the first Australians who lived in the area as well as the first European explorers that settled the Swan River Colony.

We continue our paddle and explore the alluvial islands and estuarine vegetation of the Canning River Regional Park before arriving at Kent Street Weir. After a ~40 minute well earned break we jump in our kayaks and head back to our start point via a slightly different route but again taking time to absorb the areas beauty.

No paddling experience is needed. We provide you a safety briefing and show you how to paddle our very stable sit-on top kayaks.
