Secure in your single or tandem kayak, watch as the  New Zealand fur seals frolic in the streams, ducking, diving and weaving around your kayak. Enjoy paddling alongside and getting close to these characterful youngsters as they swim around the Kaikoura Peninsula in search of their favorite snack - octopus.

The seal have been visiting this area for many years, and scientists are still arguing about the reason, as it is highly unusual for ocean-dwelling marine mammals such as the New Zealand fur seals to spend time in fresh water. Learn from your experienced guide about the habits and characteristics of these elusive creatures.

Surrounded by dramatic cliff faces, craggy rocks and the Kaikoura Peninsula, this experience is both awe-inspiring and humbling yet the young seal pups will keep you highly entertained with plenty of leaping, swimming, backflips and more! No previous kayaking experience is necessary.
