Okarito Kayaks

West Coast
All year round

Explore the waterways of Okarito Lagoon

Guided kayak trips are run on demand, not to a scheduled time with big groups. The guided kayak trips are customised for a personal and intimate experience. They will talk with you to organise the best time to go, to work with the lagoon tides and conditions. Great for those who might be a little less confident on the water, or those who just want more information on the flora, fauna and local history of Okarito. Delicious food and coffee also available! Okarito is a small peaceful village on the western sea coast of the South Island. There’s a range of accommodation available in Okarito, most of it in beautiful homely baches / cribs / holiday homes (depending on where you’re from) spread throughout this small town. There is also a wonderful gorse busters project which is a way of cleaning up the environment. Check it out on their website. Gemma and Baz would love to meet you!

Matariki is a time where people, whānau, and communities gather together to remember the year that has passed, to celebrate the present, and to plan for the next year. It is a time to remember our loved ones who are no longer with us, to feast and celebrate with our relatives and friends, and to look towards the future and the hope of a season full of bounty.
