Incredible views accompanied by a fantastic tour guide (William!)! Will made our time on the water both informative and interesting as well as super fun! Would recommend this trip to anyone of any kayaking ability, especially if your keen to know and see more of the beautiful Franz Josef area


We had 3 hours tour at Franz Josef kayaks. Our guides Dale and Joe (josafin) were really great and professional! We got all equipment needed , took us in van to the lake (few minutes drive) we were 2 in each kayak , all was very professional.
It require some moderate strength to have this kayak tour if you do this alone but guides helped us when need, was very informative of any question we had and also told us some nice stories of New Zealand wild animals and country in general. We had a cloudy rainy day but it wad still worth it and it was great experience.
Very recommended!
