Queen Charlotte Sound is a stunningly beautiful waterway containing countless bays and inlets, sparkling turquoise waters, little private beaches and lush native forest. Exploring this watery wonderland by kayak is a truly memorable experience.

  • Return shuttle from Blenheim Airport to Picton available.

After meeting at Picton waterfront in the morning you depart for your launch point at Ngakuta Bay, just 20 minutes scenic drive from Picton. This is in the truly spectacular western end of the Sound where there is less boat traffic and many more beautiful bays and coves to explore as well as wildlife to see.

After a detailed safety briefing, you will set off on a great day's adventure. Your guide will be with you for the day to answer questions, share pearls of wisdom and ensure your comfort and wellbeing. Depending on the weather, the route varies each day to take advantage of sea breezes and to cater for all abilities.

You have a good chance of seeing stingrays and eagle-rays, a huge variety of sea birds including cormorants and sometimes little blue penguins, seals, huge starfish and if we are really lucky, even dolphins.

And, don't forget lunch - you'll be impressed at the goodies that are produced from out of the kayaks! Without a doubt, the best kayaking lunch on offer in the Marlborough Sounds and what's more, it is all sourced and made locally.


*Please Note:
