Absolutely do this!
Oct 2021
Such a great day out! I took my 7 year old daughter on this trip, and it was an amazing experience. Levi was brilliant - so chill, and obviously loves taking people on these trips. The pedal kayaks were genius. My daughter didn't struggle at all. We saw heaps of seals too! Would 100% recommend, and will do this trip again next time we're in beautiful Kaikoura!

Best experience in town, must do (even in winter)!
Jul 2021 • Couples
Firstly, my expectations of this was that I would be rowing for 3 hours on a kayak and I will be cold, since it’s the middle of winter.
However, the whole experience went really fast and was extremely enjoyable. The tranquility of being on the water, with the fantastic Kaikoura mountains backdrop and feeling completely safe on the water thanks to our guide, was a magical and surreal experience.
Levi (our guide) was excellent at keeping us dry (even pushed and pulled the kayaks in and out of water with us in them) and warm by providing waterproof and windproof jackets. He was talking photos of us throughout the kayak trip, providing local information about Kaikoura and even giving us tips on where to have the best seafood in town.
We saw many seals and one of them even came as close as 1m from us in the water.
Also, I can’t emphasize enough how easy it was to use Levi’s state of the art paddle kayaks (only paddle kayaks in NZ!). This made the trip effortless and so enjoyable.

Best Kayaks in Kiakoura!
May 2021 • Friends
We had a wonderful time on our kayaking adventure! We saw heaps of seals and being hands free was really cool. I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to go back to normal kayaks after this. Levi was an awesome tour guide and very knowledgeable. A must do if you’re in Kiakoura!

Dry, sea level fun for all ages and fitness levels

Dry!
Down at sea level, an easy activity for any fitness level. Experience seals, scenery, sight surf swells and serenity. Levi is an informative guide who combined being safety conscious with having a fun ocean loving attitude to life and his 'office'. Highly recommended.
