Full description
Don't just look at Milford Sound. Get ready to immerse yourself at sea level on a kayak journey you will be hard pressed to forget. Guides will lead you out to explore this epic vista during a 4-5 hour paddle experience. Kayak along the walls of mighty mountains, feel the fresh waterfall spray on your face as you navigate the wild fiords. Bring your own lunch (or contact the local partner to pre-purchase one) enjoy on a secluded beach and if the afternoon breeze picks up your group will raft up the kayaks and sail back to base together. If you're lucky the local wildlife will make an appearance. Grab a coffee, it’s an early start. Drive the Milford Road and arrive at Deepwater Basin. Meet the team, they will get you checked in and ready for your day. Get kitted out in all your gear, thermals, spray jacket, life vest and spray skirt provided. Once you’re changed grab a paddle and get inducted. Your guide will run through a full safety brief and split you into 8-person groups. Don’t forget your camera, phone and Go Pro, you will be supplied with dry bag to protect your belongings. Once in the water listen close as you explore the fiord with your team. Bring your own snacks to enjoy on a secluded beach. After 4-5 hours kayaking you will head back to Kayak Base. Warm up at the base and get changed. And then you are free to drive back or explore Milford Sound further.
