School group kayaking with Kaikoura Kayaks NZ

School Group Kayaking Adventures

What better outdoor experience is there for your students than exploring and building their self-confidence on the sea?

Apart from learning basic paddling techniques and kayak maneuverability, these adventures can also double as a nature tour making your students more aware of the ecology of the marine environment, weather and sea conditions and the wide range of local wildlife. Where better than in the rich aquatic playground along the Kaikoura coastline?

Practical Hands-on Experience

We offer a hands-on practical experience that is intentionally aimed towards increasing your students' awareness of the sea and the safety requirement involved to enjoy it. These 1/2 day tours are also highly effective as a team building exercise.

School Camps or Day Trips

Kaikoura Kayaks offer trips and skills training for both primary and secondary students. This can be part of a school camp or a day trip.

NCEA Assessments

Full assessments for NCEA Unit Standards or Achievement Standards.

NZOIA qualified Sea Kayak Instructors

Our NZOIA qualified Sea Kayak Instructors work closely with you and your school to plan and meet your students' needs in their kayaking experience.

From paddling techniques to water safety we offer a unique opportunity to challenge your students.

An activity suitable for all students, what better way to explore, learn and build confidence in an enjoyable, safe yet challenging environment.

Review from Hurunui College November 2016

"To Matt and the Kaikoura Kayaks team,

Thank you very much for a fantastic day of kayaking. Both our trips were very well organised by your friendly team. We found your lessons enjoyable, helping us all to be confident, expert paddlers!

We were so lucky to have a beautiful sunny day, and we enjoyed fantastic scenery and wildlife out on the water. We were even lucky to see some dolphins on the first trip.

For most of the children in our class, kayaking was the highlight of our camp.

Thank you for making it so memorable".

From Kowhai Class, Hurunui College
