Response from kiwiaround, General Manager at Auckland Sea Kayaks

Hey Mark and Linda. Great to hear that you had a good trip and felt it was safe at all times. It is the nature of outdoor activities that the conditions are different to what is forecast and safety is always the priority. As stated in our email to you, we advised your booking agent, Viator, the day after the tour that a partial refund was required and they informed us this had taken place. This was emailed to the address you placed in your booking. Thanks again for paddling with us and email us if you have any further questions

Fantastic day to enjoy the harbour and challenge of kayaking 10 km. Even for a novice like me! My guide, Eric, was very encouraging and informative. Hike and lunch were great too and the views from the top of Rangitoto were amazing. I learnt so much about Auckland as well.

The weather forced us to change the date of our trip, but staff a very accommodating to give us an equivalent tour the day and time available to us. Staff was super friendly and made sure we (two females) got home safe at the end of our trip which ended close to midnight.
