We did the sunset seal kayak and it was our first time using the pedal kayaks - what a fun experience! The night we went out you couldn't ask for a more perfect evening - it was flat calm. We didn't see many seals, just a few on the rocks but it was still every enjoyable. Our guides were awesome and would definitely recommend to people visiting.

The whole experience was a bit different for us as we had our guide Ruben all to ourselves for the evening kayak.

We have never used these types of foot pedal kayaks before, so it was it new challenge for us - still had to pedal, but we didn't have much to do with our arms. We got put into the water so didn't have to get wet and the same coming out. Only water that got on us was the bottom of our shoes on the beach!

Pretty big swells the evening we went out, so we wernt able to get as close to the seals as we would have liked, but there were a few in the water around us which was great. We started getting a bit Sea sick after an hour so we started heading back after that. Really enjoyable experience and would recommend it to anyone. Great value for money.

Awesome first time in a paddle kayak. Easy to use and leaves your hands free for taking pics. Georgia our guide was wonderful. Safety conscious and knowledgeable about the area and wildlife. My husband had to be talked into going but he loved it too. Saw a lot of seals and one swum with our kayak for a while. Very nice out on the water as it was a lovely day. Come on NZers...support these businesses if you can!

A great family tour with ages ranging from 9 to 69 years. Georgia was an excellent guide. Found the kayaks more stable than other Kayaking experiences. Had a very good viewing of the seals.

Such a great day out! I took my 7 year old daughter on this trip, and it was an amazing experience. Levi was brilliant - so chill, and obviously loves taking people on these trips. The pedal kayaks were genius. My daughter didn't struggle at all. We saw heaps of seals too! Would 100% recommend, and will do this trip again next time we're in beautiful Kaikoura!
