A fantastic half day adventure tour, suitable for all ages and levels of fitness.

Leaving from Kalbarri Boat Hire on the town foreshore you will be taken up the Murchison River in a 4WD truck for a challenging and exciting 4 wheel drive ride to the start point.

Once arrived, you will have your first canoe of the day and enjoy the beauty of the Murchison River whilst breakfast is being cooked for you. This is a meal to remember with the best bush cooks in town. Vegetarian & GF options available only.

With your appetite satisfied, you will then continue on the safari, paddling down a further approximately 3.5kms to enjoy the stunning scenery and wildlife. A third paddle leg will depend on wind conditions, and is often enjoyed.

At the end of the paddle our staff will collect you and bring you back to town with big happy smiles. We are the only tour to travel continuously down the river and this is a fantastic family outing.

***Please Note - Due to outdoor cooking facilities eg. BBQ, we are unable to sufficiently cater to Vegan or Celiac dietary requirements, Pescatarian or severe dietary allergy requirements, please feel free to BYO your own snacks.


We also offer an assorted list of hire boats on the foreshore at the Kalbarri Boat Hire, including:

Enjoy Fun in the sun, fishing, crabbing while exploring the river yourself!

The absolute best fun
I did this tour with my 7-year-old daughter. It was a fun and easy paddle. The breakfast was plentiful and our host and guide Dan was the best. I can’t recommend this trip or company highly enough. Thanks, Dan! Leilani and I had a fantastic time :)

Great adventure
Relaxing cruise at your own pace in a nice little boat up the river. Friendly helpful staff. Must do on your trip.

Half Day Canoe Safari - Must do!
We did the morning canoe safari with Dan - it was incredible value and something I'd highly recommend. You get access to the river via some pretty bumpy off-road tracks, which we couldn't have done ourselves. The breakfast was AMAZING... bacon, eggs, hash browns, beans, tomatoes, toast, cereal, fruit, tea/coffee/juices... we were very impressed. As a family, it was a great way to go exploring without being too challenging. We had plenty of laughs and made memories that will last a lifetime. Go do it!
