Multi-day Sea Kayaking Tours

If you want to fully experience the outdoors of New Zealand and get away from it all on a true adventure, this is for you! We spend our time island hopping and exploring the rugged coastlines. Theres lots of time for walks, sunbathing, snorkelling and finding marine life! We pride ourselves on serving delicious food made out of local produce and quality New Zealand meats. Our groups are small and intimate making it the best way to experience the Islands and really soak up all it has to offer. With small groups we cater for all levels of experience from first timers to the more experienced that want to learn more and step outside their comfort zones a bit. You will be amazed at the meals we can prepare sitting on a beach while camping….. and can even prepare some seafood that we gather through the day.

2 Day Kayak Tour

The trip begins in the morning at Long Beach (Russell) and gets back at about 4pm the following day. Our Two Day Sea Kayaking Tour is the Ultimate Mix of Adventure and Relaxation. Your 2 Days in paradise will be spent with a qualified and fun guide to keep you safe, well fed and show you all the good spots! Along the way we have plenty of time for exploring the Islands numerous caves and reefs, snorkelling (gear supplied) with the fish, nature walks to amazing views or simply relaxing on a quiet beach. The Bay of Islands has abundant wildlife with sea birds, little blue penguins, dolphins and even orca at times. Numerous walking tracks on the Islands offer awesome views and a chance to check out many of the native birds of New Zealand (thanks to Project Island Song).

We will spend the day island hopping our way toward our camp on Urupukapuka Island. With all this action we know you will be hungry, and we pride ourselves on keeping you fed and happy with delicious meals on all our trips. Nothing tastes better after a great day Sea Kayaking than a Gourmet meal and eating it on the beach as the sun sets on our campsite. Also you do not get better views of the stars than out on the Islands. Also for those that have extra energy you can take a short paddle in the sheltered bay where we camp….. if its dark enough, the glow in the dark phosphorescence in the water – will blow your mind!

After breakfast we will pack up camp and the kayaks and head off for another great day on the water. On our return trip we will try and see everything we missed on the previous day before we make it back to Long Beach.

3 Day Kayak Tour

The trip begins in the morning at Long Beach (Russell) and gets back at about 4pm on the 3rd day. Three days out in the islands sea kayaking, snorkelling (gear supplied), walking and exploring in the kayaks and on foot! This is an adventure that is suited for those wanting to immerse themselves in nature, those looking to test themselves a little or if you simply want more time to relax.

Our Three Day Sea Kayaking Tour is an extension of our Two Day Sea Kayaking Tour but with that extra day we can see so much more. We will take you to all the places and get to enjoy everything the Two Day Tour has to offer and lots more. The extra day affords us the time to either have a relaxing day exploring islands close to where we camp or heading towards Cape Brett.

On calm days we have the opportunity to paddle towards the “Hole in the Rock”, paddle into Cathedral Cave or explore Deep Water Cove. Another nice paddle is to stop in at Deep Water Cove where the Canterbury wreck is located and get some mussels at Oke Bay for an entree before dinner.

Along with the extra day of exploring you get an extra night camping on the islands. Dinner on the beach under the stars and a short calm night paddle in the glow of the dark, luminescent waters!
