Kayak and Bike

Fantastic day out! Guides were very knowledgeable about the area and wildlife. Very well organised and the whole day ran really smoothly with a delicious lunch in the middle. Highly recommend.

The Sounds were as clear as glass

We had a fantastic time with a wonderful guide kayaking on the Sounds, we could not have asked for better conditions. Saw sting ray, kingfish and ate the odd sea urchin - even stopped for coffee - idyllic. Lunch provided was very tasty and fresh, just hitting the spot before joining the track. The track was not so much our thing, took bikes but knew we would need to walk up and cycle down so the 2.5 hours was a bit of a push(usually given 3-4 hours but we were the only ones on the trip so spent longer on the kayaks.) Great views from the top and team at base were very good when we were late for the water taxi!!! :)

Well organized

I had Oli and Alex as my kayak guides. They were very knowledgeable and organized. Very friendly too. The hike was unsupervised and steep, but well worth it. Will definitely recommend
