Emma Ward

Senior Guide

Hey Guys! My name is Emma and originally from Invercargill growing up on my family farm.

I later moved to Dunedin to finish my schooling and I found my love for the outdoors. After some overseas work and travel, I studied a Diploma in Outdoor Leadership and Management at Otago Polytechnic. I'm now NZOIA leader qualified in sea kayak, bush, rock and abseil. I enjoy living in Kaikoura because its the perfect place for all the things I love and where the mountains meet the ocean!

Owner-Operations Manager

Kaikoura is one of the most unique places on earth and I am proud to call it my home!

 

I absolutely love introducing people to wildlife under towering mountains along our breath-taking coastline from a sea kayak.

Kaikoura has so much to offer, it’s a natural playground full of diversity and adventure.
