What a great day! Picked up by Stephen on time at the Top10 site, taken by Andy all the way to Awaroa Head to drop off other kayakers before seeking out Sting Rays to observe and then drop off at Bark Bay for a perfect walk to Torrent Bay through glorious bush. To complete the day the definitive guided tour of the AT coast as viewed from a sea kayak with Brett leading the way. Informative, enjoyable and a wonderful experience. He makes a great Latte and Hot Chocolate too. Thanks to all concerned for making it such a memorable day.

An awesome trip, a really great way to see the national park. Brilliant guide (Brett I think) who gave us plenty of local information whilst out on the water, and made it a really relaxing and fun experience. He was also a dab hand in the hot drinks department and made us mocha's on the beach whilst having our impressive sandwich and giant muffin (included in the trip!). A really personal service which is rare to find nowadays. I'd definitely recommend these guys!

Awesome guide and great service. Half day trip is quite long in the end. I ended up quite exhausted!

The guide, Lucas, was amazing. He made cappuccinos on the beach, found us fresh oysters, and steamed fresh mussels. Oh yeah - the kayaking was great too!

Did guided day trip. Well-organised, great guide, perfect balance of exercise, relaxation, wildlife, history, site-seeing and fun. If any improvement needed some of historical stuff could be mixed up a bit, must be tough for guides to repeat every day.
