TripAdvisor review - Emma, UK

I booked the sunset seal kayaking. From start to finish Emma and Cowan were relaxed and fun, and had everything covered- from suncream to wetsuit boots and beanies if you got cold. I booked on my own- wasnt a problem at all and got paired with Cowan, which made the kayaking much easier! Beautiful sunset, great views of the mountains and seals and top animal facts. Really impressed with Kaikoura Kayaks and would book again when I'm next here!
