Itinerary

Each day involves around 5 hours of kayaking. In the evening we camp out at our base camp nestled in the forest up Hall Arm. Nearby a freshwater stream flows quietly.  The campsite is very photogenic and there's time to enjoy the birdsong or simply hang around, make friends and soak up the atmosphere. We have a communal tent we use to socialise in at night while everyone cooks their meals. 

Note: If we can’t kayak due to weather conditions the kayaking may be substituted by a boat cruise and camping replaced with a hostel in Doubtful Sound.

Equipment

You'll see that we provide nearly all of the camping and kayaking equipment you'll require in the What to Bring/What's Provided list

Food

You will find when kayaking that you’ll eat more than normal! Luckily there is ample storage space in the sea kayaks. Bring food that is simple, nourishing but quick and easy to cook. We would appreciate it if you could remove all excess packaging and carry food in bags (supermarket cloth bags are ideal).  Food ideas:

Snacks: bananas, chocolate, muesli bars
Lunches: sandwich type food (cheese, salami, tuna), fruit, biscuits
Evening meal: pasta, rice or noodles with sauce plus soft vegetables, meat, canned fish
Breakfast: cereals, fruit, yoghurt, toast, baked beans

Please phone by 5pm the day before departure to confirm pick up place and time, and to advise your height and weight for wetsuit sizing.
