This kayak and walk is more than just a wonderful way to experience the Marlborough Sounds.
From the Picton Waterfront, where our office is located, kayak out of the picturesque Picton Harbour with your expert local guide to the Kaipupu Point Mainland Island. Here you can enjoy a short 45 minute guided walk to a spectacular lookout point. Learn about this community conservation project providing a safehaven for Picton's native wildlife.
Kaipupu Wildlife Sanctuary was created in 2005 to protect New Zealand's wildlife, mostly birds, who are quite unique due to millions of years of isolation. The Sanctuary's work focuses on habitat restoration and pest elimination while educating visitors about their mission. The mainland island is also sometimes used as a creche site for young Rowi kiwi, New Zealand's most iconic native bird.
This is a great way to meet the locals - your local guide and also the birdlife that make the Marlborough Sounds home.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE RUN THESE TRIPS ON REQUEST.
