Our small group tours give you the opportunity to view the remote Catlins coast. You'll observe not only diverse and dramatic scenery but unique wildlife that call this place home.
We set a leisurely course along the coastline, viewing the rocky islets that give you a sense of scale only achievable by kayak. Your experienced guide will seek out the rare and endangered wildlife that inhabit this area. You’ll watch the steady activity of the fur seal colony as they play between the water and rocky shore. You’ll marvel at the albatross if it comes in close and we’ll scan the sky for the vast number of sea birds flying above. The sea lion may roar below us, a dolphin porpoise past or a blue penguin dart by. From the wave eroded rocks referred to as ‘The Nuggets’, we’ll see the envious visitors high above at The Nugget Point Lighthouse before we journey back to our historical launching bay.
