Southwest Tasmania Wilderness Expeditions – Roaring 40s Kayaking

Adventure and Outdoors Tours Air, Helicopter and Balloon Tours Cruises, Sailing and Water Tours

This is Australia’s ultimate multi-day sea-kayaking experience and has been named by Lonely Planet as one of the world’s ten epic sea-kayak paddles. It offers a combination of sheltered waterways and a rugged coast exposed to the Southern Ocean in a remote wilderness.
Choose from 8 day or 4 day expeditions. Group sizes are limited to ten, with two guides, giving all participants an intimate encounter with Tasmania’s famous Southwest Wilderness World Heritage Area. Days will be spent exploring one of Tasmania’s most beautiful coastlines, paddling through perfect reflections in the tannin-stained waters, beneath mountains that rise from the shore and stopping in at remote beaches. Previous kayaking experience is not necessary, but all participants need to be in reasonable shape, are comfortable with wilderness camping and, most of all, have a sense of adventure.
Roaring 40s Kayaking is passionate about Tasmania and mad about kayaking, with a dedicated team of professional outdoor adventure guides who have grown up on the waterways around this special island. They guarantee active adventure experiences to excite and inspire you with high-quality kayaks and equipment, gourmet Tasmanian meals and an impeccable safety record.
