Had an amazing three-day orca trip guided by Bree! Bree was an amazing guide on all fronts -- she was extremely knowledgeable about the whales and other fauna, flora and mushrooms; she also was excellent with the currents and keeping the group happy (and she was an amazing cook, especially the salmon dinner and hot salmon melt sandwiches after a cold paddle the next morning). She knows where to go -- we saw whales every day, including a whole pod about 10 m offshore the first evening. I cannot recommend her or North Island Kayak enough.

I went on a multi-day ocean kayaking trip last week, organised by North Island Kayak. It was a fantastic adventure. In particular, our guide - Tristan - was phenomenal and made the trip that much more enjoyable. He was knowledgeable about the environment and put us in a great position each day to see whales and other wildlife. The right guide can 'make or break' a trip like this and Tristan was easy-going and attentive to the kayakers, in equal measure; he made sure everyone was having a good time. I normally don't hold out high hopes for cuisine when I'm camping but Tristan handled all of the cooking and 'knocked it out of the ballpark' every time. I highly recommend Tristan and North Island Kayak.

I went on a 3 day kayak trip with our amazing guide, Bree Roberts. She was so knowledgeable of the whales, plants and indigenous communities. She was fun and kept us all very safe. We also had incredible meals, celebrated my birthday with chocolate cake, and had plenty of time for rest and relaxation. I loved it and want to go back again and again.

Fabulous trip with Guide Bree Roberts - smooth safe kayaking with a very thorough guide - safety and geared to older ladies who like adventure! Bree’s personally and cooking were 10/10. Highly recommend! Good company - awesome tents, food and we saw killer and humpback whales along with porpoises! I felt safe and enjoyed the days on the ocean
