Why the Marlborough Sounds?

The Marlborough Sounds offers some of the best sea kayaking experiences in New Zealand – away from the crowds with beauty and wildlife in abundance.

There are few places in New Zealand where true nature experiences can be had in close proximity to major tourist routes and Anakiwa, close to the popular Queen Charlotte Drive, is one. Here lush sub-tropical rainforest in its virgin state flourishes close to the shoreline within arms reach when paddling with us. Opt for kayak rentals in the more remote Kenepuru and Pelorus Sounds and begin to explore just a tiny part of the 1500km of coastline that makes up this remarkable area.

Sea Kayak Adventures is the kayaker’s sea kayak company. We specialize in nature-based paddling for the intrepid traveler with an emphasis on experiencing the environment of the Marlborough Sounds without interfering with its delicate ecosystems.

From our large purpose-built base at Anakiwa, with plenty of safe parking available, we are literally minutes from the shoreline of the best sea kayaking in the Marlborough Sounds. The Queen Charlotte Track also beckons close by with options for hiking and mountain biking.

Gorgeous coastal views, the stunning Marlborough Sounds, and native bush – the Queen Charlotte Track is utterly unique. Combining the best of New Zealand walking and biking with a seamless network of cruise and pack transfers, resorts and lodges and great food and wine, whether you’re here for one day or five, the Queen Charlotte Track is brilliant every day.
