We had a great trip with matt and our family. I liked watching the seal eat the octopus it was very funny when the seal threw the octopus into the air. We also heard that the group before us had seen a Whale! We saw some dolphins too. It was the best way to see the seals. (Jessica, age 8 years)

Great experience, Matt and Connor had everything under control and were very knowledgeable too. We had a delay due to weather conditions and Matt was spot on with his prediction and timing. No problem with kids, very safe and brilliant to see some seals in this environment as the sun went down.

My girlfriend and I went on the sunset tour and had the best time. Right from the first minute when we arrived we were made to feel very welcome by our guides Conner and Matt.
When we got on the water, Conner made sure we had a really good time. He took us all around the bay and kept us all entertained with questions and information about Kaikoura.
We would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

it was a professional organization, and we had so much fun while being safely guided. Before the activity, we had a half-hour briefing and training, good.

Booked the morning kayaking tour led by Connor. A small group of 7, we all left with massive smiles having come across a pod of dusky dolphins. Great support, local information and friendly staff. I would love to do it again.
