Sea Kayaking in New Zealand is one of the most popular adventure activities and it is easy to see. Surrounded by so much water, and such a varied coastline, one is spoilt for choice. We have such a varied landscape, from the deep fiords of the Milford sounds, & the golden beaches of the Abel Tasman, to the spectacular volcanic remains of the Coromandel Peninsula, each is special and very different from the other.

From a sea kayak you can appreciate the magic of the entire coastline, that you would otherwise be unable to experience, it is like tramping on the sea. With no fumes or noise, you can appreciate nature at its best. There is also the chance of encounters with wildlife as you drift on by.

During your Flying Kiwi trip there are options to kayak in numerous places including the Abel Tasman, The Coromandel Peninsula, Kaikoura and on the West coast of the South Island.

Most kayak trips also include a few hot drinks and snacks and you can guarantee to be spun a few entertaining yarns by your guide. It's amazing how much distance you will cover and the views and scenery are unforgettable whilst getting the chance to get up close and personal with seals, dolphins and occasionally even penguins!

Costs from $75
