Full Description

 There are few places in NZ where true nature can be experienced in close proximity to major tourist routes. Anakiwa, close to the popular Queen Charlotte Drive, is one of these places. Here lush sub-tropical rainforest in its regenerating state flourishes close to the shoreline within arm’s reach when paddling with us. And with over 1500km of shoreline to explore, there is plenty to do.

Whether it’s a self-guided freedom adventure for a half-day, full day or multi-day trip you are looking for, or if you’d prefer to have local knowledge and expertise provided by one of our professional guides, either way we have it covered.

From its strategically located base at Anakiwa, Sea Kayak Adventures can access all three of the major waterways of the Marlborough Sounds – Queen Charlotte, Kenepuru and Pelorus – and transport can be arranged to all major entry and exit points, offering a greater level of flexibility than any other kayaking company can provide.
