Bay of islands Nature cruise along local historic coastline to waterfalls.
We cruise along our local coastline & up a meandering river that in days gone by sailing ships used to load up Kauri Logs. Guests now transfer to Paddle boards or kayak where they slide silently along the water and explore by paddle board through mangrove forests, get up close to nesting sea birds or face to face with a roaring waterfall. At the waterfall the fun & adrenaline starts, here even first timers can safely experience paddling in foaming white water or even paddle under the waterfall itself!
All Age Fun & So Easy to Learn!
We cruise on Calm Safe Waters & No experience required - perfect for first timers.
What To Bring?
Your Kayaking/Paddleboarding can be dry, but bring a towel, change of clothes or wear swimwear (you may enjoy getting up closer to the waterfall than you plan) Bring a warm jacket, camera, sunscreen, sun protection, drinking water, nibbles etc in a small bag.
