Full Description

Experience the excitement of watching Fur Seals ducking, weaving and diving around your kayak on our Wildlife Kayaking tours with Kaikoura Kayaks.

Paddle gently along the coastline as they swim around the Kaikoura Peninsula hunting for their favourite feed of Octopus. But be sure to keep your distance as they devour their delicious dinner in front of you, then watch in amazement as hundreds of Pelagic (ocean going) birds swoop in to clean up the tasty left-overs.

This adventure takes you around the beautiful coastal waters with breath-taking views of sheer cliff faces, craggy rocks and mountain ranges while searching for chance encounters with Dusky Dolphins and Blue Penguins.

Our traditional kayak's are enclosed, safe, stable, easily steered using a rudder, while fast on the water and you will stay warm and dry.

This interactive tour is suitable for all ages and abilities while operating year round and doesn't require any previous kayaking experience.

These professionally guided kayaking expeditions adhere to the highest of safety standards. Our Wildlife Kayaking tours are one of the most popular activity tours in Kaikoura, voted number one by Trip Advisor Traveller's.
