    Half day in paradise

    Loved everything. The place, the other members of the (small) group, the guide, the lunch, the water taxi, the weather, the seals we saw... It was a wonderful moment, thank you!

    One of the best experience of my Trip.

    Hi we had a very great experience. All thanks to Craig our guide and dear friend. Just one thing we missed was sunshine rest all was just awesome. From briefing us about the kayaks and all the details then getting us suited up and the way up to the beach. All good. The kayak trip was awesome. And the water mirror finish. Crystal clear just Fab. At the end we went to Adele Island where we saw a group of seals so many of them. Playing in water dancing fighting and laughing. It was all just awesome. Made my trip.

    Wonderful way to spend a day

    Really enjoyed the trip - beautiful sunny day - nothing like a cup of hot coffee and a delicious lunch on a beach in one of the most beautiful parts of NZ!

    Great day!

    Craig and Louisa were awesome, friendly, chatty and made for a fun relaxing day out! We did the half day guided tour and water taxi and thought it was a great amount of time out. Great food, beautiful scenery, thanks so much!
