Friday Night Fiesta De Kayak

Kayaking and Dining Experience

Adventure Kayaking and Mexican Dining

Love the outdoors? Love Mexican? Have you considered Kayaking and Mexican in one great adventure? Riverlife is excited to announce an exciting new experience, Fiesta de Kayak! Bringing together the ever-popular guided kayak tour at twilight and returning to deliciously prepared Mexican food and a margarita or two.

Friday Night Fiesta De Kayak is a Mexican-themed Twilight Kayak Adventure on the Brisbane River. Departing from Riverlife Adventure Centre, all guests experience a night paddle in front of the city lights and a Mexican-themed dining experience serving Burritos and Margaritas.

Kayaking is a great adventure for everyone! Heading towards the Story Bridge or South Bank, depending on the tide. On our 90min kayaking journey, there are awesome sights and photo spots! You will see the sunset over the bustling skyline and watch the nightlife come to life as the city lights turn on, one by one. 

After you return from your adventures, we then settle into waterfront dining at Riverlife for fun fiesta vibes. Here we will serve a traditional Burrito and nachos to share (Vegan options available) as well as a frozen margarita or a corona included in the price of $139.

For this adventure, be ready to start at 5:30 pm by arriving at the Adventure Centre by 5.15 pm. Just select your adventure and the number of people in your group, the date and we will do the rest!!

**Something to note: Fiesta de Kayak has now replaced the Twilight Kayak with Wine & Grazing Board, any vouchers or gift cards valid for that product are now valid for Fiesta De Kayak.

Safety While Kayaking

We are dedicated to showing you a great time kayaking on the river, but safety is always our priority. Before every session, we will provide a full safety briefing. We will cover everything that you need to know in this briefing, however, here are a few things you can be aware of before getting started: Please Do Not Cross The River At Any Point Whilst Kayaking At Riverlife

The Brisbane River is a fully operational transport hub, unlike other areas you may have kayaked before. That means there are plenty of larger and faster crafts than kayaks on the water. Please stick to the passive craft lane, which your guide will point out to you. 

If You Fall Out Of Your Kayak, Don’t Panic! 

Every Riverlife kayaking participant is given a Personal Flotation Device (PFD). The first thing to remember, if you do fall in, is not to panic. There are simple and safe techniques for getting back in which are demonstrated in your safety briefing. If you can’t swim that’s okay! Just please ensure you have booked a guided experience. That way, our fully-qualified instructors can help you along the way.

Zero Tolerance Policy

Riverlife operates with a Zero Tolerance Drugs & Alcohol policy for all activities. Because of this, if found to be in breach of this policy, you can not participate in the adventure. Should you arrive intoxicated, there is no option for rescheduling or refunds. However, if you are looking to have a drink afterwards, we have alcoholic beverages available.
