Nugget Point Sea Kayaking and Seal Tour - (Long Trail) Kaka Point, Catlins

Our small group tours visit Nugget Point daily and give you the opportunity to view the remote and rugged Catlins Coast.

Highlights

  • Amazing scenery of Nugget Point light house and Wildlife Reserve
  • Close encounters with Wildlife - Sea lion, Dolphins, Orca, Elephant Seal and Sea birds are all something to keep an eye out for
  • First time kayakers ok! Previous kayaking experience not necessary

Along the way you’ll spot wildlife that call this place home; fur seal, sea lion, albatross, cormorant, and penguin. You’ll hear interesting snippets of local history as well as view some amazing scenery.

The long trail sets a leisurely course for the Nuggets where we search out seals and sea birds as we make our way along the cliff edge. At the “Fish Bowl” we watch the steady activity of the colony whilst looking up at the envious visitors high above at the Nugget Point Lighthouse.

ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND!

The day we went is kind of cloudy. But the couch provide plenty of information and also take care of use very much. We kayak through the nugget point which is the experience that hard to have if you didnt kayak here. Overall, its a very nice tour and all the equipments been provided well. Nothing to worry!

Great value experience

We had heaps of fun sea kayaking. The area is lovely and the kayak was new and easy to use. We spent two hours out out on the water and saw seals and sea birds relaxing on large rock formations out at sea. Our guide was knowledgable about the local area and the trip was both structures and relaxed. He also look some pictures for ya which was very kind.
