5 StarsLoved this 1/2 day!May 06, 2019

Reviewer: Heather Densmore
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.

5 StarsGreat adventure January 18, 2019

Reviewer: Robert Cocc
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.
