Guided Kayak Tours

in smaller groups

We take you on a kayak adventure through an incredibly diverse area, that is just 20 mins from Nelson. Cable Bay is a beautiful pebble beach, which also holds an important piece of Kiwi history. Nestled in beside it is Pepin Island; which boasts an intricate labyrinth of caves, corridors and islets – navigable only by kayak.

We are the only kayak operator on these beautiful waters, and often we are the only boats in sight!

Memorable Experiences

in a unique place

We know nature is best experienced in smaller groups, so we’ve kept our tour groups small too.

We’re all about curated authentic and memorable experiences, and our kayak tours centre around ensuring every trip is personal and has you in mind. We want you to come off the water feeling invigorated, refreshed and with a mind packed with great memories from your experience at Cable Bay. We cherish unique places, and look forward to sharing it with you too.
