Benign weather allowed us to enjoy the Kaikoura Peninsular to its utmost.
Being in Kaikoura for one day we were hopeful that we could get out on the water to see the spectacular scenery and wildlife. Matt was extremely helpful, assessing our ability levels and advising us of the best spots.
We appreciated that we could get on the water really quickly, separte to teh guided tour group that was going out.
In a half day paddle we went around the peninsular and back, zig zagging through rocky reef areas festooned with seals. We also encountered many pods of dolphins that seemed to enjoy interacting with us, swimming around and under us, as well as trying to ride our somewhat pathetic bow wave and following us when we started to paddle off. They also put on an awesome show, pirouetting out of the water, and tail slapping along the surface.
All in all it was an experience that will remain with us for a long time.
