Cruise from Kaiteriteri into the heart of Park at Torrent Bay to kayak some of the best territory on the coast. Your Guide will direct you to your unguided walk after lunch and Boat Hosts will meet you at your pick up point. If you are enjoying the kayaking, you have the option of taking a short walk during the lunch break, then continue in the kayaks to complete our Beaches, Bays and Seals kayaking trip.

Call us to book connecting coach with Nelson or Motueka if required.

*PLEASE NOTE: the shallow tidal beach at Torrent Bay often requires a small boat transfer to get you close to shore, and can involve wading through water over your knees. For people with limited mobility or balance we recommend you book a Split Apple Paddle half-day kayak, and walk the golden beaches and forest around Kaiteriteri.
