With 1500km of coastline to explore, stretching from just north of Kaikoura to the tip of d'Urville Island, the Marlborough Sounds is a truly remarkable sea kayaking destination.
What makes your sea kayaking experience in the Marlborough Sounds different to other parts of New Zealand? The climate for a start - here at the top of the South Island, visitors can enjoy a generally settled year round climate with many more paddling days available than in other sea kayaking destinations around the country.
You'll also escape the crowds as with such an extensive network of waterways, even at the height of summer you can normally find a wee corner of paradise to explore without masses of others. Or, at least you won't be dashing to be first to already crowded beaches!
There is also the amazing range of accommodation options available for guided or independent sea kayakers - from Department of Conservation campsites spread conveniently a day's paddle apart to popular backpacker lodges and even five star resorts! Fancy a cappucino or how about dining in a fine restaurant at some stage during your paddle?
And there is wilderness aplenty too so whatever your preference, the Marlborough Sounds has a memorable kayaking option for you.
