Kayak review

Hi there, All the staff were v friendly and professional and everything was v well done. To be honest though I was a bit disappointed about the amount of wildlife we saw. I think we saw one penguin and 3 or 4 seals that were all asleep! From the photos I was expecting frolicking seals and dolphins jumping over the boat etc. So from that point of view it seemed like a lot of effort, time and money to not see much. Sorry!

From Kaikoura Kayaks - Half Day Fur Seal Kayak Tour

Hi Thanks for your review, Glad to hear how frinedly and professional our staff are! Sorry that you felt this way, unfortunately we dont always get to see hundreds of Seals hanging out on the rocks because the weather can change the activeness and behaviours of the seals. We must also take in to account the fact that these New Zealand Fur Seal are nocturnal meaning they are most active at night time, this means that they are resting during the day just as we do at night time. As for the Dolphins, we cannot gaurantee sightings of these animals as they are a wild animal and their location at any one time is out of our control. We hope this helps with your understanding of the animals behaviour :) Thanks again, From the friendly crew at Kaikoura Kayaks

Nice, but just hire your own kayak

It was fun, but I don't think I needed the tour. We ended up chatting more than we did kayaking. There was a lot of just sitting on the water and making small talk. Also if you've already walked to Mt. Kean you've already seen the seals they kayak you out to see.
