This Iconic New Zealand kayak company has been instrumental in the development of kayaking with many of its designers being the founding fathers of the industry.

The SeaBear Packhouse double was there at the birth of the Abel Tasman tourism industry and remains the Premium kayak for quality tour companies and multi day excursions.

Paddling Perfection Sea Touring and Multisport Kayaks

In 2015 we launched the PP SPORT to provide a great entry level kayak into the Coast to Coast and multisport market. At the same time, the PP ADVENTURER provides an exciting option for a fun kayak. Whilst easy to paddle for beginners, the ADVENTURER encourages paddlers to improve their skills and get the best from this exciting little kayak. Easy to paddle, easily rolled and edged and very capable in the surf.

As we widened our range, we launched the PP TOURER paddle – a carbon shaft/ fibreglass blade that is a pleasure to paddle but is robust and light at the same time. Paddling Perfection Sea Touring and Multisport Kayaks offers a range of premium kayaks that provide comfort, stability, and maximum storage capacity, giving both adult and children explorers and day paddlers the greatest enjoyment of this sport. Whether you just want to get out on the water and cruise in something more luxurious and stable, or you’re contemplating tackling the elements on an extreme polar expedition, we‘ve got a kayak designed for you.
