Amazing tour experience with a friendly and knowledgeable expert guide, Toby. Had so much fun getting out on the water, learning along the way about the history of places we passed and wildlife. Seeing the seals and seabirds, and getting to reach the lighthouse and look out from the top, were definite highlights. A choice three hours on the water. Would definitely go again.

Did the lighthouse kayak tour with Malika, loved it and even my teenagers enjoyed it immensely. She was very knowledgeable, fun, and great to talk to. Even living in Nelson we still learned heaps we didn’t know! Highly recommend this tour, great value.

Great organization, lovely helpful people and a super hour travelling down the Maitai river, chatting to people on the bank and the bridges and enjoying the birds, fish, scenery and detachment from the real world while gliding on the river. Fabulous, had to do it again!

Always good fun and great service. We hired the party board for a 12 year old's birthday party, easily took 9 of them and they had a great time.
