Paddle around the rugged Kaikoura Peninsula and keep an eye out for seals hunting for their favourite feed of octopus! Have your camera ready for chance encounters with dusky dolphins, blue penguins, albatross, and humpback whales!
Continue your journey around the beautiful coastal waters where you’ll experience breath-taking views, sheer cliff faces, craggy rocks, and mountain tops with unspoiled views of the Seaward Kaikoura ranges. Along the way, you’ll see the playful New Zealand fur seals basking in the sun or maneuvering around under your kayak.
Our enclosed double sea kayaks are easy to use, stable on the water and will keep you warm and dry. The cockpits are fitted with lumbar support (for your back) and closed-cell foam seats and footpegs for comfort. These professionally guided kayaking expeditions adhere to the highest of safety standards.
The tour includes a short briefing at the start of your adventure and includes transport, safety gear, and paddle instruction. You will spend 1.5 to 2 hours paddling alongside an experienced local guide as they talk about the Kaikoura history and share their passion and knowledge on the wildlife of Kaikoura.
