Kayak Hire

Kayak Hire Melbourne, from the Kayak Shop and Training Center at 37 Jetty Road Sandringham 

Sea Kayaking Specialist - right on the water

Our Training & Hire Centre is conveniently located right on the beach at 37 Jetty Rd, Sandringham, just a short scenic walk from Hampton Station.

Sandringham Harbour is a great venue to learn the fundamentals of sea kayaking and is a good base for hiring craft to explore Port Phillip Bay. If you are new to sea kayaking or wondering how you might take it up, come down to the centre and have a chat with our friendly staff.

Explore the enclosed waters of the Sandringham Harbour, or venture down to Brighton Baths past the historical beach boxes or to Half Moon Bay past Red Bluff for a coffee and a meal before returning.

The team will give you a briefing in safety before you head out for a paddle.
