Perfect paddling

Newly retired this was my first sea kayaking experience and I really enjoyed it. Our guide was very friendly and got to know each of our group of eight. He gave clear instructions on how to handle the kayak and off we set on our journey to Split Apple Rock. Once there he was happy to take photos of everyone. We did some fun manœuvres in the nearby caves. We enjoyed, coffee, tea, juice and cookies on the beach. All highly enjoyable. For the second part of the trip, We cruised to see seals on our way to Abel Tasman where we had ample time for a beautiful walk which included exploring both beaches and headland views through native bush before being picked up and returned back to base. The captain gave an interesting commentary on the seals and other local facts. Would definitely recommend.

Super fun with Kaiteriteri Kayaks

We’ve had a great day and beautiful wheater. In the morning we’ve had the cruise and walked the loop at Sandy bay. We’ve seen seals at the rocks. In the afternoon we went in a group with kayaks and instructor Alex to the famous Apple rock and had a cup of tea. In short: a fantastic day!

Great day!

Fab day! Alex was our guide and he was super friendly and really knowledgeable. Thanks Alex! Was a perfect pace for us. Plenty of free time and never felt rushed and felt we got a bit in. Did a wonderful walk in anchorage think it was pit head loop. Do it! Cheers Liz and Ben

Easy but lovely trip

Well organised and lead trip, we would have preferred to be kayaking for a longer distance. Really felt we could have gone to split Apple rock and back in less than 2 hours. Still an enjoyable experience.
