About Catlins Kayak and Adventure
Our small group tours give you the opportunity to view the remote Catlins Coast. With over twenty years’ experience in these waters our guide will show you a coastline rich in wildlife and history. On your journey to the famous nugget shaped rocks you’ll observe not only diverse and dramatic scenery but unique wildlife that call this place home: the albatross, including the royal; the World’s rarest sea lion and smallest penguin; the Catlins largest colonies of fur seal and cormorant; and perchance the elephant seal, dolphin or yellow-eyed penguin, thought to soon be extinct from mainland NZ. Our tours depart daily with no prior kayaking experience necessary. We provide you with everything you need.

I was a bit nervous kayaking in the sea but Jared was so calm and reassuring. Loved that we were taken into some of the small bays before reaching the nuggets. Amazing experience to kayak around the nuggets. Loved it!

Great to get on the water, got to paddle around the nuggets at Nugget Point in nice conditions. Lots of wildlife to see, including seals, penguins and many birds. Very responsive communications before we went out. Jared was an fantastic guide. Easy to talk to and very knowledgeable on the history, weather and tidal conditions, environment and wildlife. Highly recommended activity if you find yourself in the Catlin's.

Such an amazing experience! We saw sea lions chilling on the rocks. Sunrise Kayaking is the best way to say hello to the world and the wild animals. Thank you, Jared. Cheers, Lisa

WOW what a fabulous morning. Jared is a fabulous guide. Very knowledgeable in all aspects - kayaking, sea conditions, local history, wildlife etc. Would definitely recommend. Would love to come back for the sunrise trip, although getting up early is not my thing, it would be worth it.

Jared was a fabulous host for our kayaking trip. Provided all the equipment, was kind and courteous and very knowledgable about the local area. We were lucky to have a private tour as the only ones booked. The scenery was amazing and seeing the wildlife was a real treat. 2 albatrosses landed right by our boats and we had a very playful seal ion surprise us by swimming with us the entire return leg from the nuggets to the beach. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Highly recommend this experience. Dan and Emma.
