Kaikoura is one the South Island’s most scenic venues with the Pacific Ocean just a few kilometers from the snow-capped Kaikoura Mountains. It’s also a haven for whales and other marine life: the unique makeup of the coastline and underwater Kaikoura Canyon creates a rich feeding environment. Kayaking options in the area include guided trips, independent rentals, and even kayak fishing.
