Best Experience Ever!!

This experience is definitely a 10/10 for me. Pedal kayak made it so easy to move around the area while your hands are free to take photos! The activity is 3 hours long and I enjoyed every second of it. Our tour guides are friendly and knowledgeable of the area. And i guess it's just luck as we managed to see dusky dolphins on our way to the seals. I definitely recommend booking this activity when you visit Kaikoura. You will not even get your feet wet ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

A wonderful experience!

It was a relaxing walk, in beautiful weather with numerous encounters with seals swimming or resting in the sun. We even saw a whale that we approached about 200 m. Everything accompanied by the competent explanations of the guide.

Outstanding way to view the wildlife

This was an amazing experience, we got up close to the seals, which was the aim of the trip, but better than that, lots of dolphins on several occasions, got right up close to us - very very special. The guides, Logan and Conna were outstanding: knowledgeable, helpful and they catered to all age groups. The pedal yaks are easy to use, so your hands are free to take lots of pictures. I've been with this company before; they're outstanding.

Great experience

We really enjoyed using the hands-free kayaks. Saw some seals in the water, even more on land and were even lucky enough to see dolphins up close! Very fun and knowledgeable tour guides :)

Magical evening

My third trip out, this trip was made more special with the appearance of a small pod of Dusky dolphins. Viewing sunsets from the sea is always magical.
