Adventure and informative
April 01, 2020
This was one of our favorite excursions. We were in a van with four other people. The drive to the farm for kayaking was beautiful and very informative. Our guide explained about the invasive species of plants and whats being done to control them. The farm where we kayaked is involved in protecting the penguins that are unique to this area. Very cool. The kayaking was fantastic. The water is a turquoise blue. We saw seals, penguins, and other water fowl. It was a wonderful day!

The drive through the countryside to Flea Bay was beautiful. Our guide was friendly and informative. We were able to stop and take photos of the town down below. Kayaking was smooth and fun. We saw a couple blue penguins and many seals. It was a great day!

Trip in the vehicle to Flea Bay was an interesting drive on a gravel road around steep hills/mountains. Absolutely beautiful with informative talk about ecology and human impact. Very interesting to hear the current approach regarding farmers and land management co-management --- all in a french accent - yes the French have a link to this beaufiful Akaroa. Then went on to a farm and Kayaking in Flea Bay. Fantastic! Some little dolphins came into the Bay and swam with us. Seals were up on the rocks with the juveniles barking in their puppy voices with the "big daddy " up on another rock. A little blue penguin swm right across our path. My husband and I loved it all to bits.

Having a 1/2 day tour meant we also had time to explore Akaroa, NZ. Our guide was knowledgeable about the town, the flora and fauna. We enjoyed panoramic views of the area then headed to a private bay to kayak among blue fairy penguins and young seals.

Three of our group decided to do the sea kayaking trip. It was a wonderful adventure. We were driven to the launching area by Ben. The entire trip was an educational experience about all aspects of New Zealand. The drive was also a great way to see the beautiful countryside. The sea kayaking was great fun. It started with safety instructions and then we were helped with launching our kayaks. We paddled in a cove and were able to see Hector Dolphins and many types of sea birds. Our guides did an outstanding job during the entire trip. I would highly recommend this trip.
