    What to Expect
    This trip starts at 8:30am at the strategically placed base on the corner of Anakiwa Road and Queen Charlotte Drive which is approximately 15-minutes’ drive from Havelock or 30-minutes’ drive from Picton.  

    Once you have completed the necessary paperwork, your guide will run you through the safety briefing on the kayak. From the base it is a short 3-minute drive to Anakiwa beach to launch for your days' adventure.

    Once on the water, your guide will lead you along the coastline of a scenic reserve where there are no houses or people, so you can enjoy the Sounds in peace. Depending on the weather your guide will lead you to a beach for a delicious picnic lunch with hot drinks.

    Sit back and relax or take a swim, the choice is yours. After lunch, you will work your way back towards Anakiwa, taking a different coastline so that you don't see the same thing twice. At the end of your trip around 4:30pm you can return to the base for hot showers before continuing on your epic New Zealand journey. 

    Whilst we cannot guarantee any marine mammal sightings, you can expect to see a variety of sea and forest birdlife with possible sightings of rays, seals, little blue penguins, dolphins and if you are super lucky – Orca!

    We spent a full day with Dan our guide, and were lucky in that there were just the 2 of us. First at the base we were given comprehensive safety instructions, and kitted out with the gear.Once launched, down at Anikiwa, Dan guided us up the coast of the Marlborough Sound

    The three of us opted for the guided full day tour, and we're glad we did. We're experienced enough that we could have navigated around ourselves, but our guide Jonathan knew where we were most likely to see stringrays and other interesting creatures, and read the weather to

    I really enjoyed our trip! We had perfect weather and a small group of only four people so it was easy to adjust the pace and route to our wishes. We were never bored but never in a rush as well. With a lovely group, a good lunch and a perfect guide, that made a wonderful day

    We were four people with a Rimu Active Adventure tour who chose the 3 day kayak option. A wonderful time with our great guide, Nick, who took us to so many beautiful spots over the three days. We even dove for mussels and cooked them for our lunch! Highly recommend this kayak
