An awesome tour of the rugged and interesting coastline of Pepin Island. Absolutely stunning and a world away from the busy Able Tasman tours. The half day was the perfect length for my 8 year old children and their grandparents too. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable and very patient! Oh and the cake was delicious!
Highly recommend!

Our family of 2 adults and two 12 year olds had a wonderful half day kayaking trip with Cable Bay Kayaks. The scenery was spectacular and we felt in very safe hands with Gwyn and Clive. Very highly recommended.

We did a half day tour on a sunny Saturday morning. Our guide, Gwyn, turned out to be a very experienced and nice guy. The double seater kayak was fine and so we followed Gwyn along the beautiful coastline, passed caves and waves, watched seagulls and shags and even saw dolphins jumping. Wonderful experience, thank you!

We did the half day kayak adventure and we absoloutley loved it! It was a perfect day, we were lucky we had lovely calm seas and wild black sky’s made for a stunning back drop. The scenery was outstanding, the incredible wild life, rugged terrain, barely any other people around and a lovely group of all ages. The guides were just fantastic, it was lovely and relaxing they had great local knowledge and there was some exciting cave exploring. We’d highly recommend this for a wonderful day out and I think it’s Nelson’s best kept secret! Thank you so so much Mel, Gynne and Clive for an epic adventure.
