Experience the excitement of watching seals ducking, weaving and diving around your kayak. Have chance encounters with dolphins, penguins and albatross!
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.
