Best day ever!

Had an amazing time! We were really lucky to see a massive pod of Dusky Dolphins, which were extremely playful. Emma and Tye took us out to see them and gave us the option to stay and play, or head back to see the fur seals. Would definitely recommend this tour

Good time

I can absolutely recomand guys from Kaikura kayaks. They tell you and show you everything what you need to know before start and when you are in the water, they tray to show you all wild life. we saw seals in the rocks and a few of them jump to the water and swim beside us. we saw also groups of delphins, one penguin and some birds. They made my day. Thanks
