“River Kayaking on a beautiful, crystal clear river. Great Guides, great fun.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

We booked our trip with the Pelorus Eco adventures via a Grab One offer that included an overnight stay at the Blue Moon Accommodation. We had a fantastic time! We have done quite a bit of Kayaking before, but never in such a breathtaking place. The river was crystal clear and not too cold, so we had plenty of opportunity to swim and jump off the rocks! This, plus the amazing scenery and great hosts made for a wonderful day. The kayaks and other equipment was top notch. A scenic drive in, lunch by the river, then into the Kayaks and off you go - into another world of clear water, trout, native bush, gentle rapids, beautiful waterfalls and some real 'Hobbit" scenery. Fantastic value for money and highly recommended!

“Kayak Adventure Pelorus River South Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Had a spare day in Nelson and spotted an advert for kayaking on the Pelorus River (between Havelock and Nelson) so we decided to be adventurous and 'have a go', not having been in a kayak before. It was FANTASTIC. Shane, the guide, was friendly, informative and lots of fun. He guided us down the most beautiful clear pristine river (and rapids) for a totally enjoyable kayaking experience for 1-1/2hrs. Hubby had the Go-Pro attached to his helmut so lots of laughs when we played back the video. Wish we had stayed at Blue Moon Lodge in Havelock (also run by Shane and his wife) but will next time. A big THANK YOU to Pelorus Eco Adventures - highly recommended.
