What a great day. The water was like a mirror. The sun was shining. We were treated to stingray, seals, Shags and Hector dolphin. Who could ask for more. Aaron was a brilliant guide very informative. So lovely and peaceful paddling around the bays. Even had the weka come to try steal lunch. Such a cool bird. I highly recommend doing this trip.

Awesome experience. Our group not very fit and still managed 3 days kayaking. Aaron the owner was very helpful and friendly. Our guide Lea was an amazing person. She looked after us very well. Totally recommend.

What a awesome experience. We live kayaking and the marlborough sounds has long been on our bucket list and we were not disappointed. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful . We saw birdlife, Rays, fish, jellyfish. Was just magic. Catered for all levels. This is a must do if you make your way down here.

Stoked to have helped you tick off your bucket list trip and we agree it is a must do, but we are a bit biased. ;-p Thanks for taking the time to review and we look forward to hopefully seeing in the future with more of the family. Cheers Nat

What a day! We experienced the sounds from a totally new perspective and learnt loads from our awesome guide Shaun, who told us about the wildlife, indigenous flora, Maori culture and history and more. We felt totally safe the whole time and went way further than we would have independently (around 20kms in total). Plus we were given a tasty lunch and hot cup of tea to warm up half way through! Id recommend it to anyone wanting a cool day out doing something a bit different.

We did a fully guided kayak tour -via Active. 1 day full, one morning, one afternoon. It was totally amazing. We saw many species of marine life, including a small shark, and many birds. Gareth was a truely phenomenal guide, know everything about trees and animals, and even found fresh mussels to eat for lunch. Kayaks are great, very stable, we received all good gear and instructions. Rest of staff was also wonderful and went the extra mile. Kudos and many thanks to Aaron to have set up and run this special place. Hope to return soon to do more trips with them, it's on my must-do-next-time-when-I-return-to-NZ-list, and definitely recommend the kayak tour

Had a fantastic day with Jamie as our guide. He showed us lots of things we wouldn’t have noticed on our own and was very knowledgeable. We got a bit cold in the rain and really appreciated the extra clothing he brought along as well as a good lunch in a sheltered spot.

Blooming loved it!
Great boats - great guide - great weather - simple great lunch - great group....

I had a mix up with a 3rd party that i booked through and the amazing iSite team plus the amazing team here worked it all out for me! Helped me get a lift out to the start point and then down to the beach from there.

They have a simple set up that works really well - the kit is a little rough round the edges but they have thought of what you need, extra jackets for when the wind picks up simple life jackets that can work for all etc.

We headed out 4 boats 8 people ( i was the odd number of guests travelling alone ) so was lucky enough to be in a boat with the guide!

We buzzed around the Sound and stopped for breaks and lunch - we pushed it pretty hard as we were all game - but the other teams didn’t go half as far as we did as they were happy at a more relaxed pace.

We spent a full day with Dan our guide, and were lucky in that there were just the 2 of us. First at the base we were given comprehensive safety instructions, and kitted out with the gear.Once launched, down at Anikiwa, Dan guided us up the coast of the Marlborough Sound pointing out local features, bird life and sea life, including several stingrays, and shags. Dan also showed some techniques for trying to improve our kayaking skills. Lunch was included on the full day tour, which we stopped for in Mistletoe Bay. Sandwiches and cakes and fruit and even fresh plunger coffee! ( can’t get over having fresh coffee on a kayak tour!) .The water in The Sound is so clean and clear. We had a fantastic day, and would certainly recommend this small company.
Thankyou especially to Dan, who was a brilliant guide.
