What You'll Do
  • Enjoy a relaxed kayak safari with a knowledgeable guide
  • Get close to nature in this eco-paradise
  • Head out in the early morning to experience the magic of the wildlife at play
Put on your life jacket, slap on some sunscreen, and rekindle that pioneering spirit. You’re about to get up close to nature and wildlife in an eco-paradise. On this early morning kayaking safari from Akaroa you’ll watch the world wake up around you!
What to Expect
Experience the best of nature on a 3-hour guided kayak safari from Akaroa town. Venture into an eco-paradise and view wildlife along the way. Stop at a remote beach for refreshments, a swim, or just to explore.

After a briefing session at 07:30 the tour heads out on a gentle paddling excursion. After about an hour, you’ll stop for a break at the beach. 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 sightings. The guides say that these are the best trips of the day, as there’s no one around, and it’s just you and nature and your silent kayak.

What you’ll actually see on the safari depends on a number of factors, but often guests report seeing cormorants diving, gannets feeding, and fur seals and flippered penguins playing. There have even been sightings of the rare, small Hector’s dolphin.

Included in the tour at no additional cost are photos that your guide will take, refreshments, a personal picnic blanket, a remote beach stop for a swim or relaxation, and brief stops on the water to hear about interesting events, and facts about the wildlife and points of interest.
