Our tours are designed to fit into your trip schedule with half and full day trips. Join us on the Cable Bay Explorer, a half-day trip paddling one of Nelson's most diverse areas. The trip gets you up close with nature - tours often include sightings of seals, dolphins, penguins and varied bird-life.

The Cable Bay Pioneer is our full-day trip and is a circumnavigation of Pepin Island - you'll experience padding along the sea coastline and into marine reserve. This unique area boasts an extensive network of caves - only navigable by kayak through. We're the only operators in this area, and are often the only boats around.

We keep our tour groups small, as we know nature is best experienced solo or with a handful of like-minded paddlers.
