Marlborough Sounds Sea Kayaking
Wilderness Guides can show you the Marlborough Sounds New Zealand like no-one else! Join Steve, Juliet and their small, friendly team for guided or independent sea kayaking tours, mountain biking and gourmet guided or independent hikes on the Queen Charlotte Track - or a combination of all three on the Marlborough Sounds adventure combo tours.
The Marlborough Sounds, at the top of the South Island, is fast becoming the place of choice for visitors looking for wilderness and adventure - while at the same time enjoying personal comfort and lots of options for relaxed or challenging experiences. Your guides are local people who live, work and play in this fantastic region. Experience their passion and commitment - this is where your adventure begins!
Guided Sea Kayak Trip
Experience the beauty and seclusion of the Marlborough Sounds with this awesome little one-day guided sea kayak trip. This tour takes in the western end of Queen Charlotte Sound with its sheltered coves, beautiful beaches, azure blue waters and lush native bush – stopping at a secluded beach for a yummy lunch. Learn about the history of the area from our knowledgeable, relaxed and friendly guides.
What makes our trip different? Well, everything really - our awesome guides who genuinely enjoy spending time with visitors to our region, our great food, great music in the van while we travel and our more relaxed approach to the route we take each day. We pick the best direction to have the breeze at our backs wherever possible - and we take you where the wildlife is whenever we can!
Departs 08:30 | Duration 7 hours 30 minutes
Guided Kayak & Day Walk on the Queen Charlotte Track
Our adventure combos are without a doubt the best way to experience the Marlborough Sounds if you only have a few days - with either our 1 Day Kayak & Walk or the 1 Day Kayak & Bike, you can experience all the iconic activities of the spectacular Queen Charlotte Sound in just one day!
Of course, we'd love you to stay longer - and you really should to truly experience the Marlborough Sounds - but if a day is all you have, then our adventure combos are the trips for you. These unique day trips combine the best of sea kayaking with walking or mountain biking on the popular Queen Charlotte Track - all completed at day's end with a boat ride back to Picton. Awesome! NB. Of the two adventure combos, the mountain biking option is the more adventurous of the two and is more suited to people who have done some biking before.
