A fun trip, challenging enough for beginners in beautiful surroundings with experienced guides. Cathedral Cove is a must visit and arriving by kayak is great.

We had a fabulous time kayaking at Cathedral Cove! We did the classic tour in the morning. I've never kayaked before but my husband has. We were in a double kayak and it was very easy to navigate. Our guide was amazing! So funny and informative - we learnt lots about Cathedral Cove and NZ. He made us hot drinks on the beach at Cathedral Cove where we stopped for a break. Fabulous experience!

My friend and I had booked a three hour trip and were a bit late. I called the operator and they very really friendly, and even waited for us (in the end the tour left 25 minutes later because of us). There was a bit of a swell and high tide, so we could not land near Cathedral Cove, but the paddling was easy and the weather superb. He guide was funny and friendly and took good care that we would not get too close to the shore (risk of being rolled over by a big wave). We "sailed" a bit, too (good teamwork moment) and we stopped for a snack and tea/coffee/cappuccino break on a very nice beach. On the whole a very good experience. The only "down side" was a tiny hole in the hull of our kayak, that flooded the rear part of the semi-dry compartment. But luckily enough, we had put all sesnsitive things in extra dry bags.

We had so much fun on this kayaking adventure. Everyone was so friendly, the weather was wonderful, the sites were breathtaking, and they made us coffee! What's not to love? This was my favorite thing I did on my whole NZ trip so quit thinking about booking and just book already!

I'd also recommend packing a lunch and spending time on Hahei beach after the trip. It was wonderful to relax afterward.

Did the Cathedral Cove classic this afternoon, such an amazing experience. I've never kayaked before but this wasn't a problem at all, kayaked over to cathedral cove where we had coffee made on the beach and time to explore, fantastic way to spend an afternoon!!
