If you have limited time in the area but are keen to experience the brilliance that the Marlborough Sounds has to offer, then this is the trip for you. Let our professional and qualified guides not only tell you, but show you what makes the Sounds such a special place.
This full day trip provides the opportunity to explore the Sounds’ secluded beaches and paddle beneath pristine native bush. Your guide will find one of the many beautiful beaches to stop for a delicious homemade picnic lunch. Returning to Anakiwa we will always do our best to take you a different way home so you never have to paddle the same coast twice.
The Marlborough Sounds offers some of the best sea kayaking experiences in New Zealand – away from the crowds, with beauty and wildlife in abundance.
There are few places in NZ where true nature can be experienced in close proximity to major tourist routes. Anakiwa, close to the popular Queen Charlotte Drive, is one of these places. Here lush sub-tropical rainforest in its regenerating state flourishes close to the shoreline within arm’s reach when paddling with us. And with over 1500km of shoreline to explore, there is plenty to do.
