Sea Kayak Adventures were a pleasure to deal with. They made all the logistics easy - well worth spending the extra cash to have pick ups, drop offs, boats, passes and accomodation organised - plus gear and luggage waiting for us at each location. Great idea to split the 3 days into 3 different activities - walk, bike, kayak. Made the trip much more of an adventure. Most others we met along the way were either walking or biking the whole track, which wouldn't have been as fun. The bikes and kayaks plus gear were all top quality and well serviced. I loved my bike - super light and easy to operate gears. Aaron gave a terrific briefing before the kayak leg - we remembered all the tips and tricks and had no problems along the way.

Hired a double kayak for half day from Aaron to potter around the bay. He gave a clear briefing and had a good style and gave us equipment that fitted well. Minimum of fuss but we felt confident that he knew well what he was doing.

We visited and did a half day tour from a cruise ship port stopover.
Nat organized to collect us from the i-site in town and we were driven approximately 25 minutes out to their take off spot on the Sound. It was a wonderful 3 1/2 hours with our own private guide Alex,who was Canadian , but had an amazing knowledge of the area which he shared with us as we explored the Sound.
The equipment was great with spray jackets, life jackets and even a waterproof skirt for the kayak so we did not get wet at all.
We would recommend this group as our tour was flexible and considerably longer and better value than the tour organised by the cruise company. I did all our arrangements with Nat via email and had no problems. She organised our collection and drop back to the shuttle all in line with the ship timetable which was great.
we had a great time and would highly recommend this operator.

Thank you very much for your feedback. We are glad you had a great afternoon with Alex and enjoyed his company. We try to be as flexible as we can with cruise ships to make it less stressful. Once again thank you for your feedback. Cheers Nat
