We had a wonderful tour with Jake. He gave clear and thorough instructions at the beginning and made sure we all understood. He helped us all individually get situated properly in the kayak. On the tour Jake talked about birds, sea life and geology of the area as he pointed out examples. It was all quite interesting and easy to follow. We patiently followed some dolphin activity and was rewarded with one popping up between our kayaks. Jake kept a close eye on everyone to make sure we were safe and having a good time. We recommend this tour and also recommend Jake as a guide.
Fantastic experience with a wonderful knowledgeable guide, Benoit. We saw Fairy Penguins, Fur Seal mothers and pups, Cormorants, Paradise ducks to name a few. I will definitely come back if I have the chance. Exhilarating experience kayaking at sea and knowing the cost of the tour contributes to saving the endangeted Yellow eyed penguin and Blue Fairy penguin.
Fantastic! A treat to kayak in this lovely Flea Bay getting to view NZ fur seals, penguins and other birds up close. The guides were more than excellent and knowledgeable. We even got to view a baby penguin feeding. This outfit is doing great conservation work. Highly recommended! More than worth the $$$ which was so reasonable.
Unfortunately due to weather conditions we couldn't do the kayaking. But did land tour and learnt so much about the little penguin. To be able to see how awesome and dedicated the crew at Pohatu are in carrying out their conservation work was amazing. Thoroughly recommend this activity. Thank you for an inspiring time.
The kayaking was great, the overall experience was amazing! Only improvement I could suggest is clearer instructions on the pick up point as several of us were at different locations and it was unclear where we needed to meet so we almost missed the bus!
