This was a brilliant trip - one of the highlights of our 2 weeks in NZ. We went first thing in the morning, when the mist was still thick over the lake. Water was mirror-calm and it felt rather spooky.
The equipment and clothes we were given were fine, and the kayaks were also very good. Don't be put off doing this if you haven't kayaked before - there's no way you're going to capsize one of these sea kayaks.
We had a safety briefing, and then the kayaks were adjusted so we could reach the pedals comfortably. You have a choice of single or double kayak. Then off we went.
Claire was our guide, and she was great. Full of information about the lake, and took some super photos which are included in the price. Just download them from the web and you're done.
I couldn't recommend this trip more. Definitely a must-do when you visit Franz Josef.
