Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely amazing. Don’t be put off if you suffer with sea sickness or dodgy knees. The paddles are so easy to work and not a cycle motion so easy on the joints. Seats were mesh so comfortable and safety was totally covered. Guide was extremely friendly and explained all manner of things about NZ. Thank you again

This was a great excursion. We saw seals, dolphins and even a penguin but I understand that you don't always see those. Our guides were very knowledgeable and friendly and it was a great experience. These small group activities are the best - you see and learn the most. This would be a great family activity.

Had a great trip out. The paddle Kayak was ideal to keep your hands free to take photos and made it easy to power the boat without any paddle experience. Lots of playful seals around us which has been a highlight of our holiday. Our guide was great and knowledgeable. Would recommend to all.

A definite holiday highlight. To be out on the sea as the sun sets was magical. Pedalled canoes were really easy to operate and steer. Guides were highly competent and very friendly.

The day was a perfect one. The weather was kind, the views outstanding and the experience of paddling a kayak in a small group with an experienced, informative and engaging guide has made a huge deposit in the 'happy memory bank'. It was a truly enjoyable experience, seeing a good range of wildlife along with getting up close with the fur seals. The experience was great value for money and is highly recommended.
