Trip Overview

Come along on a 2-day sea kayak consolidation trip in Akaroa Harbour. One of our experienced sea kayak instructors will lead this trip and help you to revisit key skills from the 2 & 4-day sea kayak courses. Completing a consolidation trip is a great way to back out on the water, gain confidence and meet like-minded people. At the end of this trip, you should feel confident to plan your own sea kayaking adventures.

On this trip, some time will be spent revisiting course content and skills. However, we will not be teaching advanced skills on this trip. Consolidation trips are about reinforcing skills and gaining confidence and experience.



*A minimum OENZ 2-day sea kayak course or equivalent is required to attend this consolidation course. Please give us a call if you are unsure if you have the skills or confidence to complete this trip before booking.

Consolidation Trip Location

On this trip, we will be making the most Akaroa Harbour has to offer. Basing ourselves from the Duvauchelle Holiday Park at the head of Akaroa Harbour, we will have many options within a short drive.  Akaroa Harbour’s rugged coastline is teeming with wildlife and dotted with sea caves and beaches that are only accessible by boat. A must-do Sea Kayaking location.
