Kaikoura Kayak's 1/2 day wildlife kayaking tour, is an exceptionally highly rated eco nature adventure blast on the water. Outstanding.
Welcome to Kaikōura Kayaks and our award-winning guided wildlife kayaking tours with 100% success rate for viewing the NZ Fur Seals.
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.
As we paddle, experience the excitement of watching Fur Seals ducking, weaving, and diving around your kayak, and look out for Blue Penguins, Albatross, and playful Dusky Dolphins.
Then watch as seals swim around the Kaikōura Peninsula hunting for their favorite feed of Octopus. 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 leftovers.
Our traditional sea kayaks are enclosed, safe, stable, easily steered using a rudder, while fast on the water and you will stay warm and dry. Families, individuals, and groups are most welcome. Our ratio of 1:8 and 1:4 for family’s means that your tour is crowd-free, with a maximum of 8 people per guide.
Our Wildlife Kayaking tours are one of the most popular activity tours in Kaikoura, voted number one activity in Kaikōura by Trip Advisor Traveller’s.
We look forward to introducing you to Kaikōura’s marine life using our top-of-the-line sea kayaks and promise that it will leave a lifetime impression.
