Guided Seal Kayaking Half Day Experience

Seal Kayaking with Kaikoura Kayaks NZ

Experience the excitement of watching Fur Seals ducking, weaving and diving around your kayak. Paddle gently along with them as they swim around the Kaikoura Peninsula hunting for their favourite feed of Octopus.

But be sure to keep your distance as they devour their delicious dinner in front of you, then watch in amazement as hundreds of Pelagic (ocean going) birds swoop in to clean up the tasty left-overs.

This adventure around the beautiful coastal waters takes in the breathtaking views of sheer cliff faces, craggy rocks and mountain ranges while searching for chance encounters with Dusky Dolphins and Blue Penguins.

This fun tour is suitable for all ages.It operates all year round and doesn’t require any previous experience.

These professionally guided kayaking expeditions adhere to the highest of safety standards.

Our ½ Day Seal Kayaking tours are one of the most popular activity tours in Kaikoura.

All tours depart from our base at 19 Killarney Street Kaikoura daily and run for exactly 3 hours from sign up until we bid you farewell.

The first 1½ to 2hrs is spent paddling around the coastline after the 45 minute briefing at the start of your adventure. This covers gearing up, basic kayaking and paddling lessons along with our stringent safety protocols and also includes a 15 minute debrief at the end of your tour.

Review from David 1st of June 2016

"Probably our best day in New Zealand. The weather was perfect so it allowed us to enjoy an amazing trip with the kayak. The dolphins were playing around our kayaks and the seals as well. The guide was very friendly and gave us a lot of useful explanations. And the kayaks were perfect. An unforgettable experience!"
