Amazing!!

We were booked on the lunch time tour but missed it by about ten minutes due to traffic. The guys were so lovely and let us join the later tour which was a sunset tour. One of our highlights of our time in New Zealand will definitely be recommending! THANK YOU ?

Do it!

Such a nice way to spend an evening. Levi was great and a highlight of the night, he clearly loves his job, loves Kaikoura and has a ton of local knowledge. Seals in the water were few but just being out on it was really enjoyable. Definitely recommend the pedal kayaks, such a cruisy way to get around on the water. Thanks Levi!

Great fun, definitely a must-do!

Highly recommended experience. A beautiful way to enjoy seeing fur seals in their own space. Our guide, Georgia, was very knowledgeable and helpful, making this an amazing experience for us.

Unique family fun

The paddle kayaks are so much fun, and a lot more energy efficient! Comfortable seats let you recline back, and the kayaks are very stable and easy to steer. Our guides were friendly and knowledgeable. We saw plenty of seals both in the water and on land, and there were plenty of opportunities to take photos. Our trip was postponed a few times due to bad weather, but Levi kept us informed and discussed the best timings with us. He also offered a full refund if the weather prevented us going, which was reassuring. The kayak was a highlight of our visit to Kaikoura, our tweenagers loved it, and other members of our tour included much younger children so it really is suitable for everyone.
