An excellent day out in the sun. Sea Kyaking on the Cook Straits is a fantastic way to see the coastline and hop between islands. Coffee and lunch was provided with a transfer back to base.

A lovely way to get a taste of the Queen Charlotte Sound by both water and land. With the guidance of Lucy on the first day's sea kayak adventure our family had fun, felt safe and had a beautiful experience.

These guys really looked after us. Safety was paramount. We rented the kayaks for half a day and when we arrived the weather was looking a little shaky so they sent us to a secluded bay where we were completely sheltered then picked us up...More

Our trip was seamless from the online booking, the information provided prior to our arrival, the front line office team in Picton, the arrangements for luggage transfers and the overnight locations. We can't speak highly enough of the customer service provided by the MSAC team...More
