Sea Kayak Hire - Half Day - For 2

Sea Kayak Hire - Half Day - For 2


  • Explore the Kaikoura Peninsula by water
  • Map, radio and safety flares provided
  • See and abundance of wildlife including seals, dolphins and birds

Chart your own course amongst the natural wonders of the Kaikoura Peninsula and experience a relaxing 4 hour kayak on pristine waters teeming with seals, dolphins, whales and seabirds. Gaze at the soaring cliffs and mountain tops whilst paddling in almost silent solitude!

What's Included?

  • 4 hour kayak hire for 2 (1 kayak for 2 people)
  • All equipment, map, radio and flares
  • 4WD transfers to the kayaking spot

You and a friend will meet experienced sea kayak guides who will help you to decide which part of the pristine peninsula you should explore. This will depend on a number of factors including weather conditions, movement of the wildlife and your experience level.

Then it’s into the Landrover Defender as we drive to our kayak launch location. Here your SKOANZ qualified sea kayak guide will provide you with a map, VHF radio, a back up mobile phone, spare paddle and safety flares before going through a safety briefing.

Now that you are comfortable on your top of the range kayak, it's time to start your kayaking adventure. You will be free to explore the spectacular surrounds of the Kaikoura Peninsula at your own pace. You can expect to see an abundance of wildlife including fur seals, the occasional dolphin or whale and a multitude of sea birds – including the graceful albatross. You will then make your way back to the launch location to end your half day in the water.

This experience is part of the Responsible Range as holds a Qualmark Gold endorsement and was the very first Friend of the Sea sustainable dolphin and whale watching operator in New Zealand and the first kayak operator ever certified by Friend of the Sea.
