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 ?

AMAZING!!!

Such a brilliant day out! Levi (our guide) was amazing, and he made the trip really special. Would 100% recommend - the pedal kayaks were so easy to use. Myself and my 7 year old daughter both had a great time!

Best experience in town, must do (even in winter)!

Firstly, my expectations of this was that I would be rowing for 3 hours on a kayak and I will be cold, since it’s the middle of winter. However, the whole experience went really fast and was extremely enjoyable. The tranquility of being on the water, with the fantastic Kaikoura mountains backdrop and feeling completely safe on the water thanks to our guide, was a magical and surreal experience. Levi (our guide) was excellent at keeping us dry (even pushed and pulled the kayaks in and out of water with us in them) and warm by providing waterproof and windproof jackets. He was talking photos of us throughout the kayak trip, providing local information about Kaikoura and even giving us tips on where to have the best seafood in town. We saw many seals and one of them even came as close as 1m from us in the water. Also, I can’t emphasize enough how easy it was to use Levi’s state of the art paddle kayaks (only paddle kayaks in NZ!). This made the trip effortless and so enjoyable.
