Our Two Day Sea Kayaking Tour is the Ultimate Mix of Adventure and Relaxation. Along the way we have plenty of time for exploring the Islands numerous caves and reefs, snorkeling with the fish or even a spot of fishing. There are always Dolphins in the Bay of Islands and we often get to see them up close and in season even Whales. Numerous walking tracks on the Islands offer awesome views and a chance to check out many of the native birds of New Zealand. Instead of a cemented Itinerary we will take you to the best places on the day and do what you want to do….. whether it be checking out the under water snorkeling trail or finding the dolphins. This trip covers all the main Islands of the Bay and some of the smaller ones too. We have lots of time to search for Kaimoana (seafood) which is abundant in the Bay. And if you want to keep your fish of shellfish you can take it back and cook it with dinner. With all this action we know you will be hungry, and we pride ourselves on keeping you fed and happy with delicious meals on all our trips. Nothing tastes better after a great day Sea Kayaking than a Gourmet meal and eating it on the beach as the sunsets on our campsite. We also know you don't want to be spending your 2 Days in paradise with a wet blanket so we will give you a super safe super fun guide to show you the good spots! Also you do not get better views of the stars than out on the Islands and a short night paddle in the sheltered bay with the glow in the dark Phosphorescence in the water will blow your mind! This trip departs at 8am on Day one and gets back at about 5pm the following Day. Price $450 Minimum numbers apply


Come and join us on our kayak tour up to the famous Haruru Falls. Haruru means “big noise” and we will get you right underneath these magic horseshoe-shaped falls to feel their full power. OUR TOUR STARTS ON THE BEACH IN WAITANGI. LOOK FOR OUR VAN AND KAYAKS ON THE BEACH OPPOSITE 14 TE KARUWHA PARADE. From here we will kit you out in our modern sea kayaks and get you familiar with all the gear. We use top of the line sea kayaks with rudders and spray skirts to keep water out of the kayak. After a little instruction we will head off up the river exploring the mangrove forests on our way to the falls. As we go we can spot nesting birds and old Maori Pa sites. When we get to the falls this is where we can really have some fun! Here we can get up close to the falls and for the more adventurous take a plunge under the falls. The Waitangi River is rich with history and Maori legend as your guide will tell you on the way. After a paddle under the falls we will stop for a break and refreshments before our paddle back down the river to where we started.... What a sweet day out!!


This is our most popular tour and one of the best day trips in the Bay of Islands. If you want to get away from the crowds and enjoy adventure this is for you. We pride ourselves on our small group sizes (8 or less) and our flexible planning. Our tour starts when we pick you up from your accommodation and head for the car ferry to Okaito (NZ's first Capital). From here we have a scenic drive along the Russell peninsula to where we start. After we get comfortable with the gear and cover a few safety points we can get on the water. The Islands of the Bay are surrounded by white sand beaches and rocky coastline. There are caves to paddle into and explore and the water is crystal clear. There are over 100 islands in total and each one is different. We can stop and snorkel at one island, chill out and have some lunch on another and take a walk and get some photos on the next. This is a full day out on the water so there is lots of chances to come across dolphins or other amazing marine mammals. Your local guide will take you to the best spots and will spin you a few yarns about local legends and the rich Maori and European History. A decent level of fitness is required.

Prices are best available, in New Zealand dollars and include all taxes. Booking more than 7 nights?
