I went on a day kayaking tour and my guide, Kyle, was awesome (: It was nearing the Christmas season and he was wearing his Santa hat, even while he was kayaking. How cool was that! He even brought along his pirate flag, all in the name of good fun (:
When we first paddled out to the sea, we gathered together and Kyle led us through a ritual. He took out his shell-horn and said some maori words before blowing on it. And then we all had a piece of brownie for teabreak. Haha
Throughout the entire trip, Kyle was telling us stories of the maori people, the history of the places. It was really very fascinating. To top it all off, we all "sailed" back to anchorage, holding onto one another's kayaks tightly and the big sail.
It has definitely been one of the highlights of my trip here in New Zealand. (: Thanks for the great experience!
