“A unforgettable morning in Akaroa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

This tour was amazing!! It was stunningly beautiful to see the dolphins. They accompanied our kayak for a while. We had luck that we also saw a little blue penguin. Our guide Kevin told us a lot about the area. It was a great experience.

“Great tour despite bad weather conditions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Brent our tour guide gave us a very professional introduction to sea kayaking so we felt safe and ready to go. The equipment is really good. Unfortunately the weather was bad, it was raining and windy with 1.5 meter waves :-) but nevertheless it was a great experience. Brent got some hot chocolate and homemade cookies for us that we had during a break on the water.
Conclusion: great tour, great guide, great environment, book with good weather and you have a superb package...

This activity is amazing and I really recommend it. It was one of the highlights of my wonderful holiday in NZ. I felt completely safe, even though I had never kayaked before and the guides were great. Many thanks!
