Kaikoura's Original Kayak Operator EST 1998 - Celebrating over 20 years in service. With its spectacular natural setting the Kaikoura Peninsula offers rewarding kayaking opportunities. One of the thrills is being surrounded by the diverse marine life encountered in these waters. Paddle with playful Fur Seals as they dive and manoeuvre around your kayak while exploring the coastline for Dusky Dolphins, Blue Penguins and Albatross. The Peninsula offers breath-taking scenery with sheer cliff faces, craggy rocks and mountain tops over the Seaward Kaikoura Ranges. You are guaranteed to view NZ Fur Seals with chance encounters of Dolphins, Penguins, Albatross and even humpback whales over the winter months. Our award winning ½ day guided Seal Kayaking tours offer a safe and interactive experience using stable enclosed double sea kayaks. Families and private tours welcome. No experience is necessary. Kaikoura Kayaks is a Qualmark “GOLD” endorsed activity, category winners for 8 years running with Trip Advisor and voted number one activity operator in Kaikoura.
