Sea Kayak Adventures is worth the 30 minute drive from Picton (many of the other companies we looked at left from the Picton Harbor) for both the beautiful launch in to the sound and for the service. For our half-day paddle, our guide Jeremy was so great, he has been the most knowledgeable guide and we've had in our three weeks on the south island. 100% would recommend.

Hi Allie, thanks for taking the time to give us some feedback. Yes we would agree that Jeremy has picked up the interpretation very quickly and has a great way of delivering that knowledge. We are glad that you thought the drive was worth it, it just adds to the adventure with a scenic drive first. Cheers Nat

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.
