Made a decision last minute to go to Kaikoura and managed to get a booking with Levi. We went on a sunset paddle kayak tour as we weren't sure if we were able to get into Kaikoura before evening. Equipment was fantastic, all well maintained and we each had life and spray jackets. Levi and his partner Louie were very... More

Levi and his partner were awesome- very knowledgeable and safety conscious-not to mention just plain fun!! We had a glorious morning paddle, just enough time on the water to see some wildlife and soak in the beautiful New Zealand coastline. As an avid kayaker from Alaska with shoulder issues this type of kayak was perfect!!

Kayacks we're really easy to use and the tour guides were great, really knowledgable and fun. We saw lots of seals and were able to move quickly from one thing in the water to the next if there was something to see so we didn't miss anything. Would definitely recommend!

I visited you in February. It was so beautiful watching the seals and penguins. Levi and Lui, you are a great, funny team. We had a lot of fun :) Now, back in Germany, i often think about this great trip. I hope i can get back one day :)

We did this trip within 15 minutes of arriving in Kaikoura. A fabulous experience and Levi and his team were great. Very do-able even for the mature traveller and the cycle instead of pedal configuration of the kayaks mean it is easy to move and keeps your hands free for photos.

Awesome trip in a small group, great stuff! A really really amazing trip. We came so close to the seals just because they were swimming in the sea right next to us!

An excellent tour by sea!! Awesome scenery from the ocean looking back at the mainland. Up close viewing of fur seals in the water, and a little blue penguin were awesome to see on this tour. The pedal kayak was super easy to use and manoeuvre. Safety is a #1 priority and we were well taken care of! 3hr tour... More
