Kayak tours on the Wairau Lagoons, New Zealand.

This pair had a great day out on one of Will’s private kayak tours. “Will was a terrific guide and very knowledgeable on the birds and history of the area. I was worried that I might not be up for the kayaking. No problem it was easy and gentle for all ages and abilities.”

A great day for Kayaking on the beautiful Opawa River “We enjoyed a unique and beautiful kayak experience in the wetlands surrounding Blenheim. Will is a great, friendly guide with deep knowledge of the area and its history. He shares this with lots of enthusiasm. We would highly recommend this tour if you are looking for an ‘off the beaten track’ experience!”

“We had a very entertaining and interesting outing and saw lots of wildlife. Will’s photography tips much appreciated by myself being a beginner with my camera but got lots of great shots. Will’s delightful little dog Vix accompanied us enthusiastically and is trained very well not to interfere with the birdlife. We returned at dusk having had a wonderful trip. We will return some day with more camera batteries!!!”

Kayaking at dusk is a special kind of freedom “My husband and I used a travel agent to book our trip so we really had no idea what to expect for the kayaking adventure. Will was wonderful. What we hadn’t realized was that the kayaking was an all evening adventure in which Will had personally made us dinner. It was valentines Day and he even included a chocolate cake! Will was very knowledgeable about the area in which we were kayaking including the fauna and flora. He was able to answer all of our questions. By the time we returned the sun was setting and it was gorgeous to watch the sunset from the river. But the best part of the whole kayaking experience was Will’s Dog Vix. He climbed aboard my kayak and spent almost the whole time enjoying the ride from the front of my kayak. He was a little dog with a huge personality! My husband and I highly recommend using Will in the future.”

Get close to birds without disturbing them “I did a kayaking trip on the river, it was beautiful! We saw lots of birds at close range. The kayaking is very easy since you can go with the current of the tide, therefore you can just enjoy your surrounding. Vix the little dog went kayaking as well and sat on my kayak, which was very funny. Doing the way back at night time was a very special experience” Our tours are fun and easy, no great fitness or any experience is required, just a love of nature and a young heart.
