Overview

Meet at 8.30AM at our office, complete some paperwork, and then leave for Ship Cove on the water taxi. Estimated arrival at Ship Cove is at 10AM. This is one of New Zealand’s important historic locations, and undoubtedly one of the Sounds’ scenic and historic reserves. Isolated, rugged and captivating, the neighbouring coves and bays promise a truly unforgettable New Zealand kayaking adventure on this Ship Cove Full Day Guided Kayak tour from Picton.

Accompanying you for the day, your guide will impart useful information, answer your questions, and ensure your safety and comfort at all times. Weather permitting, routes are chosen on the day to make the most of onshore wind at our back. Weather conditions suitable for kayaking are essential for this tour to depart as this one day guided adventure is in a remote area. Fortunately, we can customise the trip route to accommodate changes in weather conditions.
Take advantage of your chance to spot a diverse population of sea birds. Cormorants and occasionally, little blue penguins, show up on any given day. There is also a good chance to encounter huge starfish, seals and even dolphins.
Our food is a highlight all its own, so lunch is a sumptuous affair! You’ll be amazed at the delights we can produce out of the kayaks. Typically, we take a break at Cannibal Cove, the farthest rest area allowed for kayakers in the Marlborough Sounds.
Nearing the end of our paddling tour, we catch the iconic Mail Run with Beachcomber Cruises back to Picton so it’s essential to be back to Ship Cove by 3PM. The Mail Run offers a unique peek into Sounds life as it drops off and picks up mail, supplies and passengers. As you travel back to Picton, contemplate on this rare opportunity to experience the part of Marlborough Sounds not typically explored by kayaks. Estimated arrival is at 5.30PM.
We provide the following for your convenience: double kayaks (singles on request but only for experienced paddlers), PFDs (life jackets), booties, splash jackets, spray decks and dry bags (including protection for your camera). Also included is a guide, your lunch and transfer to and from the launch point.
