Pelorus is a great area for kayaking. Have fun like a dwarf in a barrel on the Pelorus River, or if you prefer, try some sea kayaking in Pelorus or Keneperu Sounds, or in the splendid isolation of Tennyson Inlet. Bring your own, hire a kayak from one of the local operators, or enjoy one thrown in with your accommodation at one of the resorts and lodges in the area.
