Kaikoura is world famous for its Sunsets and marine life, so what better way to experience this than by sea kayak!

The Sunset Evening Classic tour has left a lasting impression with people from all over the world for the past 18 years with guaranteed viewing of Fur Seals and surreal visuals of the seaward Kaikoura Mountains as the light changes towards the end of the day.

Watch seals dive and manoeuvre around and under your kayak as the sunsets, paddle with them as they swim around the Peninsula hunting for octopus! Along your way keep an eye out for Blue Penguins or Albatross then have chance encounters with Dusky Dolphins.

Using our top of the line real sea Kayaks be ready for a true kiwi experience you won't forget!

The Kayaks are enclosed, safe, stable, easily steered using a rudder, while fast on the water and you will stay warm and dry.

Our qualified and experienced local guides will paddle you through areas used years ago by local Maori and early whalers as you watch the light change and the day draws to an end.

The Sunset Evening Classic sea kayak tour is the real deal and is suitable for all ages and abilities, no experience is needed as our guides will teach you all you need to know. Families, individuals and groups are most welcome!

Don't forget your camera for sunset shots and to capture marine life encounters.

Great experience, fun guides!

We've had fun kayaking with Miles for the sunset tour. They take safety seriously while providing plenty of fun and entertainment. Lots of seals to see on the rocks although they were too lazy or busy to swim up to us ;)

Hundreds of dolphins!

We were very fortunate to find a huge pod of dusky dolphins on a morning tour in April. We were able to paddle right through them as they jumped for us and played around our kayaks. Truly a once in a lifetime experience!

The highlight of my trip

I was lucky enough to be the only one booked in for the sunset kayak, so I got to have Sophie, my guide all to myself and she was absolutely awesome. Very informative and very cool to talk to. I got to learn quite a few things about seals that i never knew. My favourite was getting to see a seal playing around in the water. That was way cool!!! I definately recommend anyone to do it. You'll love every moment of it like I did.
