Cheeky Kea Transport Logo


My name is Jesse and I'm the first member of the Cheeky Kea family. Being born and raised in Christchurch definitely has its advantages! Growing up, I spent most of my time surfing and as I grew older, traveling became a part of me. I've been lucky enough to experience NZ and all its beauty for years so it's only fair I share my acquired knowledge with you. So, years later, here we are!


This amazing story started with a simple idea at our favorite spot, Kaikoura.

I created Cheeky Kea because I want to achieve 2 things:

  • Give tourists what they deserve: The best holiday possible without compromising their wallets or comfort;

  • Take care of our beautiful country and keep the environmental impact as low as possible.

We, the Cheeky Kea fam, want to leave a mark

in the world and we want to do it differently. So

join us and be a part of our journey!

We booked with Cheeky Kea transport to take a number of us home from a wedding. They accommodated my request only a few days out and at a very reasonable price. As soon as we boarded the mini bus the driver offered us the Bluetooth to play our own music...
