Kate Wilkins

Originally from South Australia, Kate Wilkins has been a trip leader for snorkeling, hiking, and diving adventures in New Zealand and Tonga for the past five years. She loves sharing the wonders of the underwater world with travelers, and her connections with local people in the places we visit ensure we experience the native culture in an authentic way. When not guiding, Kate enjoys yoga, sea kayaking, and snowboarding, and you can often find her road-tripping around New Zealand’s backroads with “Doris” (her campervan).

Client Testimonials


Kate is phenomenal! Absolutely perfect! She took care of everyone and everything.

Swimming with Humpback Whales
Kate is a wonderfully fun, caring person who never ceased to amaze me with how much she knows about Vanuatu. Her love of all things ocean is definitely at home on this trip, and I found myself caring about fish that I rarely would have given a second glance. I think everyone in our group felt that she instantly became our friend rather than just our guide.
— Mark L., Vestuvia, AL
Vanuatu
Kate is an exceptionally confident and self-assured young woman and is a most excellent trip leader. She shows great respect for both the culture and the local people and interacts well with everyone. She was always flexible, enthusiastic, and always had an answer to our questions. Would love to travel with her again!
