Our adventure combos are without a doubt the best way to experience the Marlborough Sounds if you only have a few days - with either our 1 Day Kayak & Walk or the 1 Day Kayak & Bike, you can experience all the iconic activities of this spectacular spot in just one day! Of course, we'd love you to stay longer - and you really should to truly experience the Marlborough Sounds - but if a day is all you have, then our adventure combos are the trips for you. These unique day trips combine the best of sea kayaking with walking or mountain biking on the popular Queen Charlotte Track - all completed at day's end with a boat ride back to Picton. Awesome! NB. Of the two adventure combos, the mountain biking option is the more adventurous of the two and is more suited to people who have done some biking before.

Your Itinerary:

Meet at our centrally located office at the Picton Railway Station at 8.30am, time for a spot of paperwork and then we depart for our launch point at Ngakuta Bay, just 20 minutes scenic drive from Picton. We prefer to take you away from the harbour environs to the truly spectacular western end of the Sound where there is less boat traffic and many beautiful bays and coves to explore as well as wildlife to see.

After a detailed safety briefing (we've been told by guests ours is one of the best in New Zealand!), it is time to set off on a great day's adventure. Your combo begins with a guided sea kayak tour in what is truly some of the best paddling in the Sounds in the western arm of Queen Charlotte Sound. Within a short time you are exploring the shoreline, spotting rays and sea birds and learning about the lush native bush near the water's edge.

For your kayaking a walking tour you continue with:

Your kayak tour concludes a few hours later at Anakiwa. Here you can don your tramping boots and pack, get some instruction for the walk ahead and depart on your independent hike of the Queen Charlotte Track from Anakiwa to Mistletoe Bay.

For your kayaking and biking tour you continue with:

Your kayak tour concludes a few hours later at Anakiwa. Here you collect your mountain bike, get some instruction for the ride ahead and then depart on your independent bike of the Queen Charlotte Track from Anakiwa to Mistletoe Bay.

The section that you are going to pass either by walking or biking passes through some of the nicest bush of the whole 71km walk and is an exhilarating ride of around 2-3 hours (11km). Views, bush, beaches - this section of the track has it all!

At the conclusion of the Queen Charlotte Track, you will walk down to Mistletoe Bay in time for collection by a water taxi at 4pm to return to Picton. It's a great way to finish - a thrilling boat ride with fantastic views back towards where you've been. Your return time to Picton is around 4.30/5pm.

We supply good quality double kayaks for the guided kayak trip (singles available for more experienced paddlers), PFDs (lifejackets), splash jackets, booties, spraydecks and dry bags (including for your camera) plus lunch for you to take with you on your walk.

Airfare is not included in the tour price.

Price Includes:

- Munchies;
- Lunch.
