The Sunrise Safari is a great option as the ocean is always a lot calmer in the early morning and the wildlife is a lot more active! Your tour begins with a relaxed and informative introduction briefing, preparing you for your safe and fun adventure on Akaroa’s stunning extinct volcanic basin waters. After your briefing, your experienced local guide will prepare your kayak for launch onto the water. Comfort and safety is always a priority. Under the watchful eye of your guide you will paddle out and have chance to try out your new skills before heading off on your adventure. Escape from the crowds, noise of other boats, and hustle and bustle of normal life.
You will gently paddle along the coastline while your guide points out places of interest and any wildlife activity that they discover.
Exploring remote bays and inlets for around 60 minutes, you will engage with nature and beautiful serenity of sea kayaking during the most peaceful time of the day. Taking a comfort break on a remote beach for around 20 minutes you can explore, swim or simply soak up our pure New Zealand environment. Your guide will serve snacks while sharing stories about the area, our unique Kiwi French village by the sea.
You will launch your kayaks back into the water and continue to search and discover while your guide watches out for interesting activity. Throughout the Safari the massive scale of landscape will amaze you, and it is a once in a lifetime experience paddling in an extinct sea flooded volcano basin.
Your kayaking adventure comes to an end when you land back onto the beach you left a few hours before. You will feel inspired, relaxed, rejuvenated, and fulfilled about what you have seen and experienced. We can also provide accommodation pick up and drop off service upon request if you are not within walking distance and without a car.
