We had a great time kayaking with Manu on the Otago harbour. Although it was a little windy, we still got to see seals, albatross and shags up close from the kayaks. Manu is a fantastic guide - very friendly and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend!

My last day in Dunedin and I got to see Albatross from a kayak...what a nice way to spend the day before leaving after a few months living here. It's a really nice way tosee the peninsula. Good local knowledge and chilled atmosphere. Cheers.
