As a family with kids age 11 and 8 who have never done sea kayaking before this was a great experience. The equipment and guides were great. We saw seals in the water as well as 2 dusky dolphins. I would highly recommend Kaikoura kayaks.

Hi there, Orca Whale's are not normally seen that often in Kaikoura or by kayak. If you want to view Whales I would recommend Whale Watch Kaikoura. Our kayak tours focus on Fur Seals and Dusky Dolphins. Thanks for your time.
