For those experienced in the outdoors we offer rental of sea kayaks and equipment. You can hire a sea kayak for a few hours, a day, or many days, and explore the water wonderland that is the Marlborough Sounds. There are over 1500 kilometres of coastline to explore, made up of a multitude of bays, coves and inlets - a fabulous place for exploring by sea kayak.
Wildlife in the Sounds is prolific. At various times of the year there are dolphins (including the rare Hector's dolphin), seals, whales, not to mention a wide array of birds like gannets, little blue penguins and various native land-based species. Other rare species include the Little Spotted Kiwi, King shags, saddlebacks, tuatara lizards, and the carniverous snail Polliphanta.
There are magnificent stands of native podocarp forest, and also areas which were originally cleared for agriculture and which are now largely regenerated.
Sea kayaking in the Sounds is very different to other areas of New Zealand, and in fact, the world! The large expansive waterways mean that you can really get away from it all, but still enjoy the small luxuries such as water-taxi pick up if required - or you can call into a resort for a cup of coffee if you want to!
