“Spend the day on the lake”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

Our guide Ben was a very experienced kayaker, helping us get to grips with things in no time, and he has plenty of information and stories about the region which added to the fun of the trip. Even though I'd never kayaked before I was able to handle a full day on the lake with only a bit of stiffness the next day. A highly recommended way to chill out and see the scenery around Queenstown at a leisurely pace after all the extreme sports!

“Amazing Experience... Loved it!!!”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

I loved my time on the water with Queenstown Sea Kayaks.. It is truly a great experience which I recommend to anyone heading to Queenstown and I will definitely do it again.. Our guide Ben Farren was great from start to finish - friendly, funny and a really nice bloke who provided us with a bit of history as well so all in all a memorable experience..
If you're after an adventure packed holiday, please make sure that you include a trip with Queenstown Sea Kayaks or if you want to have a nice relaxing time, it will suit you as well - just imagine being in your kayak on beautiful lake Wakatipu and staring at stunning views!!!

“The ultimate way to get in touch with the beating heart of Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu.”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

Kayaking on Lake Wakatipu was the highlight of my outdoor activities in Queenstown. Breathing the fresh air, gliding across crystal clear water is the best way to "get away from it all". The physical activity is also a nice excuse to splash out at dinner later on!

What an absolutely fantastic trip. The sun was shining the water was clear and inviting!!! Ben our guide was really friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. Our 3 hour trip was a fantastic way to see all the beautiful inlets along the glenorchy road and spend some quality time on Lake Wakatipu. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who loves to spend time on the water!!!!!!
