Family kayak

It was a great experience to kayak in the sea, especially with a 5 year old kid. Cowan, our guide was extremely helpful and patient and really fun to be with. Would definitely recommend to everyone.

An excellent decision to book!

The Sunset Kayak Tour did not disappoint! It was warm, the water was calm and there were plenty of seals to see - a few even jumped in the water to put on a show for us! Our guide was super friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife. I'd definitely recommend Kaikoura Kayaks to anyone visiting town.

Great experience, wonderful kayak guide (Emma)

My friend and I had a great experience with the Kaikoura Kayaks. Our thanks go to Emma, the kayak guide, who did a wonderful job in providing all the safety briefings as well as guiding us to the right kayak path (we were slow and uncoordinated at first, but Emma made it all possible). 5 stars to this experience! Khem.
