Hi Thanks for your review, Glad to hear how frinedly and professional our staff are! Sorry that you felt this way, unfortunately we dont always get to see hundreds of Seals hanging out on the rocks because the weather can change the activeness and behaviours of the seals. We must also take in to account the fact that these New Zealand Fur Seal are nocturnal meaning they are most active at night time, this means that they are resting during the day just as we do at night time. As for the Dolphins, we cannot gaurantee sightings of these animals as they are a wild animal and their location at any one time is out of our control. We hope this helps with your understanding of the animals behaviour :) Thanks again, From the friendly crew at Kaikoura Kayaks
We love these photos, thank you for sharing.
