Kaikoura Kayaks


Kaikoura’s Original Kayak Operator – Est 1998

Kaikoura’s only kayak operator that holds a marine mammal permit to view dolphins, seals and whales and New Zealand’s 1st Friend of the Sea sustainable operator for Dolphin and Whale viewing.

Experience the excitement of watching Fur Seals ducking, weaving, and diving around your kayak, using traditional double sea kayaks with cockpits and spray skirts for a dry ride and rudders for easy steering. 100% seal viewing guaranteed.

The curious NZ fur seals, blue penguins and dusky dolphins are only a few paddle strokes away and our local Kiwi Guides would love to introduce you to them around the Kaikoura Peninsula.

Your journey will take you around the beautiful Kaikoura coastal waters with breath-taking views of sheer cliff faces, craggy rocks and mountain ranges while searching for chance encounters with Dusky Dolphins and Blue Penguins.
