Incredible views accompanied by a fantastic tour guide (William!)! Will made our time on the water both informative and interesting as well as super fun! Would recommend this trip to anyone of any kayaking ability...
Incredible 3 hour sunset kayak tour with Laura guiding us on the lake, explaining the geological history of the lake and the glacier and pointing out wildlife.

If you like the nature or you're just after a good coffee this is the place to go! Okarito is cute, little town and half day kayaking tour is the best way to explore this lagoon full of native birds, amazing trees...
Everything we needed for the trip was supplied, the kayak was easy to use and the half day trip was just a perfect amount of time to explore and take in the lovely sights of the lagoon and mountains.

Awesome very highly recommend you add to your to do list while on the West Coast and excellent value for 4 hours Kayaking shared with my visiting American Granddaughter.
The dinner was excellent and we even fit in a short kayak trip.

I went on a clear, sunny day (a rarity on the West Coast) and it was absolutely beautiful kayaking up river, and fun paddling with the river on the way down.
This river winds it's way through the most stunning rainforest scenery and experiencing it by kayak is perfect.
