Full description

Discover the wonders of Lyttelton harbor on a group kayaking tour. Travel from Christchurch before dawn to view hard to reach coastline. See the local wildlife wake for the day. Have hot drinks and a beachside brunch.

Be picked up from your accommodation in Christchurch. Sit back and relax as you drive to Lyttelton harbor. Gear up and push off from the shore. Enjoy the calm morning air, and depending on the time of the year, watch the sunrise from the water.

Weave along the coast quietly to ensure that wildlife is undisturbed. Get close to rock formations and empty beaches. Go out to quail island and learn about its rich history and wildlife.
