We had a wonderful tour with Jake. He gave clear and thorough instructions at the beginning and made sure we all understood. He helped us all individually get situated properly in the kayak. On the tour Jake talked about birds, sea life and geology of the area as he pointed out examples. It was all quite interesting and easy to follow. We patiently followed some dolphin activity and was rewarded with one popping up between our kayaks. Jake kept a close eye on everyone to make sure we were safe and having a good time. We recommend this tour and also recommend Jake as a guide.
Unfortunately due to weather conditions we couldn't do the kayaking. But did land tour and learnt so much about the little penguin. To be able to see how awesome and dedicated the crew at Pohatu are in carrying out their conservation work was amazing. Thoroughly recommend this activity. Thank you for an inspiring time.
The perfect trip! Great staff, cheerful and competent. Good gear, well organised and trouble free. Our day was sunny and calm. We spotted seal without difficulty and then were recalled by a series of visits by dusky dolphin who regaled us with leaps and dives for more than 30 minutes; it was wonderful!
The kayaking was great, the overall experience was amazing! Only improvement I could suggest is clearer instructions on the pick up point as several of us were at different locations and it was unclear where we needed to meet so we almost missed the bus!
This was a wonderful experience. We are novice kayakers but handled the trip quite well. Beautiful trip, saw sosme wildlife, had a great guide and saw a beautiful sunset over the magnificent mountains.
