Kaikoura Kayaks

19 Killarney St, Kaikoura, New Zealand, 7300 - View the map

Voted "TOP CHOICE" Lonely Planet! Watch seals dive and manoeuvre around and under your kayak. Paddle with them as they swim around the coastline hunting for octopus. Keep your distance while dinner is devoured in front of you, then duck for cover as hundreds of pelagic (ocean-going) birds swoop in to clean up the leftovers. Continue your journey around the coastline for chance encounters with dusky dolphins, blue penguins and other marine mammals. Our hassle-free, eco-friendly tours offer a safe, enjoyable, interactive experience, with little effort and a whole lot of good fun! Suitable for all ages and abilities, families most welcome! Kayak hire, kayak fishing, retail store and kayak school also available. Operating year round..
