NZS-1 Transition

NZS-1 Transition

New Zealand Semester one came through the NOLS NZ base and are now Sea Kayaking in the Marlborough Sounds.

They started their canoe expedition in the high country near Molesworth Station. They paddled all the way to the Pacific Ocean just North of Kaikoura.
While on the Clarence River the group encounted low water levels and hot clear days.

Students commented that highlights from the canoe section included hiking up Dillon Cone, NZ backcountry, first aid curriculum, the length and duration of the river section. 

The group stayed near Muzzel Station where they helped the Nimmo's clear brush from a paddock, watched sheep dogs in action, learned about and tasted organic honey produced on the station.

The Group is now Sea Kayaking in the Marlborough Sounds which is located at North end of the South Island. The Marlborough Sounds are an extensive area of sea drowned valleys that makes an interesting coastline to explore. The Sounds make up approximatelly one fifth of the New Zealand coastline.

They started their Sea Kayak expedition in Picton and are attempting to paddle to Waimaru. So far they have had perfect calm conditions and the weather forecast is looking promising for the next week.
