WHAT TO EXPECT
Kaikoura is world-famous for its sunsets and marine life, so what better way to experience this than by sea kayak! A qualified, local guide will paddle you through areas used years ago by local Maori and early whalers as you watch the sun sink into the horizon. On this tour, you'll have a guaranteed viewing of fur seals and get breathtaking views of Kaikoura Mountains as the light changes towards the end of the day.
Have your camera ready to snap photos of seals diving around and under your kayak! Paddle with them as they swim around the Peninsula hunting for octopus! Along your way, keep an eye out for blue penguins or albatross. You might even have a chance to see dusky dolphins!
The tour's enclosed double sea kayaks are easy to use, stable on the water and will keep you warm and dry. The cockpits are fitted with lumbar support (for your back) and closed-cell foam seats and footpegs for comfort. The tour includes a short briefing at the start of your adventure and includes transport, safety gear, and an enclosed double sea kayak. You'll get a brief introduction on kayaking and paddling and of course, the tour will cover all safety protocols. These professionally guided kayaking expeditions adhere to the highest of safety standards.
This sunset sea kayak tour is an unforgettable experience! It's suitable for children 3 years and older. The tour caters for all abilities — no kayaking experience is required! The guides will teach you everything you need to know! Families, individuals, and groups are all encouraged to join this tour!
