Full Day Guided Kayak Trip ex Picton

Full Day Guided Kayak Trip ex Picton

A fun and interesting one day adventure on the Queen Charlotte Sound. Because you only paddle one way into the Sound, this trip provides a fantastic opportunity to see the best of the Sound in a short space of time and in a relaxed, peaceful atmosphere.

Assemble at 8.45 am for the One Day Guided Kayaking which starts at 9am with instructions before paddling out of Picton Harbour and down into the Grove Arm in beautiful Queen Charlotte Sound. Once on the water, the group of no more than 8 paddlers heads out towards the southern end of the Queen Charlotte Sound.

After an hour or so of relaxed paddling, its time for morning tea, featuring fresh home baked muffins on a secluded sandy beach. Another pleasant paddle across the Sound takes in some of the prettiest native bush in the Sounds. Then its time for lunch.

There's plenty of time for swimming, or taking a walk in the bush. The guide will happily talk about fascinating history, wildlife and Maori legends of the area. After lunch (provided) paddle along the shoreline, maybe past the nesting shags, as the group heads across the Sound again to where the Marlborough Sounds Adventure Company van awaits for your return trip to Picton.
