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.
