We did a one day kayak trip from Anakiwa in the Queen Charlotte sounds and it was definitely one of our highlights in New Zealand. We were in a tandem kayak and given safety briefing beforehand. We saw lots of wildlife (NZ fur seals, blue penguin, lots of birds) and kayaked all the way out to level with Picton and back again with tasty home baked goods for lunch on a deserted beach. Our guide Libby was fantastic! She had excellent knowledge about the local wildlife and tailored the trip to our abilities, allowing us to swap and have a go in her single kayak. Definitely go with this company if you have your own transport rather than any of the companies in Picton. There is far less boat traffic and far more wildlife in anakiwa. The trip also includes a hot shower at the end which is a lifesaver if you're campervanning! Thanks for a brilliant time. We've been inspired to continue with kayaking when we get back to the UK!
