Canoes, Kayaks & Paddleboats

Nelson Boat Hire have around 50 canoes and kayaks available for hourly, half-daily, daily or multi-day hire. Check out the canoe adventures page for more information about multi-day camping trips!

Our two-person canoes and one-or-two-person kayaks are ideal go anywhere watercraft, getting you around with a minimum of fuss, quietly taking you in close to the abundant bird, fish and animal life in and around the river.

Paddle alongside 50 metre limestone cliffs, catch a fish, or paddle down to the estuary - there are so many excellent opportunities to take in all the Glenelg River has to offer.

Try our paddleboats on the Glenelg River. Available for 15 or 30 minute time slots, these craft are timeless fun for all ages, and are great for a leisurely cruise with friends.

Ideal for a quick trip up past the bridge to Simpson's Landing or a quiet paddle down to the estuary where the river meets the sea.
