We also offer catering packages for groups! From packed lunches to Smoked Salmon BBQ served right on the river.
On our kayak tours no experience is necessary as the tandem inflatable kayaks are incredibly stable. We supply a full set of safety equipment and dry jackets for those big splashes.
Whether this is your first time on the water or if you are experienced in river kayaking, you will find the wild pelorus river has a lot to offer: Waterfalls plummet from sheer cliff faces into the river alongside your vessel.
