Tours Activities Reseller exclusions Nature & adventure Good for groups Eco Certified Wildlife Kayaking Water Activities Adventure Activities

Put on your life jacket, slap on some sunscreen, and get ready for adventure . You’re about to get up close to nature and wildlife in an eco-paradise. We are the first operators on the water every day



  • Enjoy being on the harbour before any of the tour boats
  • Explore the marine reserve with your own nature guide
  • Discover one of the best kayaking destinations in NZ


Experience the best of Akaroa's marine reserve on a 3-hour guided kayak safari in a small intimate group with your own local nature guide. Venture into an eco-paradise and have the chance for endangered wildlife encounters along the way. Stop at a remote beach for refreshments, a swim, or just to explore. No experience is necessary for this adventure. It’s easy and fun and suitable for anyone 12 years of age and older! The early morning trip can make for spectacular conditions and encounters. We are always the first operators on the water and usually have the whole harbour to ourselves with other tour boats only starting as we are finishing our tour. What you’ll actually see on the safari depends on a number of factors, but often guests report seeing cormorants diving, gannets feeding, and NZ fur seals and White flippered penguins playing. We get regular encounters with the protected and endangered Hector Dolphins which can only be found in NZ. Your tour will begin with a comprehensive safety briefing, your guide will then lead you through the turquoise waters and provide brief stops on the water to share information about interesting events, and facts about the wildlife, flora and fauna.
