Our kayaking tour of Akaroa was awesome. We were able to meet the guides after a short walk from our cruise ship. Two guides accompanied the small group and provided excellent safety and paddling instruction. During the trip, which mostly followed the shore, they gave interesting information about the wildlife, flora and geology of the area. The paddling was easy and very enjoyable. We're so pleased that we chose this excursion in Akaroa.
Great adventure. Allie was a wonderful guide and provided for a great experience
Wow, you have to try this! Fun and knowledgeable guides on safety and wildlife! Friendly and inclusive! Felt right at home on the water! Many Mahalos everyone!
Best tour ever!! We saw mom and baby Hector's dolphins right as we started and then raced others in the kayaks. A pod of them stayed with us the whole time. It was amazing. Highly recommended.
We had a marvelous time with our guides. They were so in tune with the expertise of the members and handled each one according to their ability. Beautiful coastline and an overall fun day on the water.
This was a great tour - even as beginners we were welcome! Very helpful and patient guides, and the scenery was divine!
Really good trip, tailored to the ability of the group.
Akaroa is a beautiful and quaint town and our experience kayaking in Akaroa was one of the most memorable experiences of our trip to New Zealand. Gravil and Allie made our experience unique and gave us a novel perspective from the coastline looking out for Hector dolphins, penguins, mussels, and other native marine life while sharing the history of the beautiful surroundings. Well worth the time! We were a group of four and due to expected weather in the afternoon they were able to accommodate our schedule and head out early and make the most of a beautiful morning and early afternoon. They took pictures for us during our kayaking trip, so you don't need to worry about bringing your camera or phone, and sent us an easy to access Google link where we could download our pictures at our convenience once we returned home. They watched over our electronics and other items we did not need on the kayak by locking them in the van. Additionally, they gave us a short tour around town and pointed out a wonderful restaurant for lunch. It was a wonderful excursion from our cruise ship we would highly recommend!
This was a fantastic experience. The location was wonderful and our guides were professional, informative and really nice people. Even though it was a cloudy day we both thoroughly enjoyed our paddle. The highlight was the dolphin swimming around our kayak. If we are ever in Akaroa again we will definitely do this trip again.
The Bay of Akaroa was beautiful and was easily viewed from the kayak. We did not get to see any penguins, whales, dolphins. I was dissappointed not to have seen those wildlife features.
