Multi Day

This two day tour boasts the most kayaking time out of all of our tours on offer. Join the Oar-Some Marine Reserve one day kayak tour and finish your day in breath taking Anchorage. You will stay on board the Aqua Packers, floating backpackers where you can truly relax in style with a hot shower, barbeque dinner, continental breakfast and a cosy cabin or dorm bed. On day two you can take the morning at your pace. Walk the coastal track (approx 45 minutes) to Watering Cove where you will meet up with your afternoon guide and kayak your way through the sheltered Astrolabe waters. Check out the islands including the very special Adele Island – home to the NZ Fur Seal (kekeno) and a cacophony of native birdsong before finishing your two day tour back in Marahau.
