Fantastic experience, although very lucky

This is a professional company who made us feel confident in the equipment and our experience from the outset. We first checked the weather and then went through all eventualities before setting off without a guide. We got the see dolphins and seals swimming under our kayaks which was very fortunate but not guaranteed obviously.

Fun Family Time

The kayak's and equipment were top notch and the instructions excellent. It was a cold day but none of us (family of 5), got wet or suffered from the cold. We managed to kayak several kms and not get close to the Ferry or any boats - only seals. It was a fun family experience.

After making sure we knew how to kayak and where to go, they put us in the water. A lot of fun.

Perfect way to explore the sounds!

This company was great. They made sure we felt safe and comfortable and gave us the routes we needed to check out the nearby areas. I would highly recommend this for anyone in the Marlborough area.
