Full day Guided Sea Kayak Tour from Picton

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Upon arrival at your departure location on the Picton Waterfront you will receive a detailed safety briefing before setting off on your half day sea kayak adventure. 

    You will be guided away from the harbour environs to the truly spectacular western end of the Queen Charlotte Sound where there is less boat traffic and many beautiful bays and coves to explore as well as wildlife to see.

    Wildlife you may see include sting rays, eagle rays, seabirds, including cormorants, little blue penguins, seals, starfish and sometimes even dolphins.

    Your lunch is sourced and made locally and you will get to enjoy this at a private secluded beach.

    If weather permits, you may also have the chance to kayak from Picton Harbour to maximise your time on the water.

    Your guide will answer questions, share pearls of wisdom and ensure your comfort and wellbeing.

    Dependent on the weather, your route may vary to take advantage of sea breezes at the back. There is no set route which means all ability levels are catered for on your tour.

    Your tour will finish back on the Picton Waterfront.

    This trip exceeded our expectations. We had the privelege of spending around an hour in the midst of a group of NZ fur seals swimming around close to the shore in the bay we set off from and our guide Alex was able to find and show us a wide range of sealife throughout the day.

    An amazing kayak trip, scenic views and great information from guide Shaun. He was very informative and fun to spent the day with. We were lucky with the beautiful autumn weather and calm sea. Yummy lunch and coffee provided on a great picnic spot! Highly recommended!

    Very easy to book and find. Greeted by incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Our very enthusiastic tour guide Jake was fantastic! He had great local knowledge and amazing knack for spotting wildlife! We saw fur seals, eagle rays, fed the fish and saw several species of bird.
