A must do experience in Kaikoura

No sunset for us on the night but lots of seals lazing around on the rocks. A great experience whilst visiting Kaikoura. Cowan was a great teacher and guide, setting you up with all the gear you need and skills to help you enjoy your time out on the water.

An unforgettable experience

The team are friendly, knowledgable and unpatronising. Nothing is rushed and you feel confident in the water. And then they take you to see seals, puffins and seabirds. The views are stunning and the wildlife close up is amazing. Thanks to you all.
