A kayaking trip with Driftwood should not be missed while you are in Blenheim. Marlborough is certainly known for its vineyards, but taking some time to see the area's other natural beauty is a must. We went out at about 6pm with Will - our fantastic guide and Driftwood's owner - and kayaked down the peaceful Opawa River until we hit Big Lagoon. We were able to see many beautiful waterbirds up close and then watched a great sunset from the shore of the lagoon before paddling back. Will is an excellent guide and took wonderful care of us, offering us tea, sandwiches, and wonderful baked goods (all made by him) along the way. This trip will be a very memorable in Marlborough for us.
