Important NotesThings you need to know about this tour
We reserve the right to amend timetables, cancel departures, substitute plant or equipment and alter prices at any time.
Note: Coach and sea kayak excursions – a cruise might be substituted for the kayaking component if weather becomes unsuitable.
Departures are subject to weather and minimum numbers.
Sea kayaking and wilderness camping have inherent risks and can be dangerous. In Fiordland, they are characterized by remoteness, rapidly changing and sometimes extreme weather and water conditions, cold water, limited kayaking landing sites and camping under the forest canopy.
Changing conditions can mean that tours have to be modified. No two tours are the same. It is very rare but weather could delay your scheduled return by up to 24 hours e.g. road closures or weather conditions preventing kayaking. Clients on guided tours must listen carefully to and follow guides' instructions and adhere to safety.
