    EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCES

    AUCKLAND NEW ZEALAND

AUCKLAND SEA KAYAKS

Auckland is one of the world’s most unique sea kayaking locations.

Escape from the heart of the city to volcanic islands, sandy beaches and an abundance of wildlife. The sheltered waters of the Waitemata Harbour make it a sea kayaker’s paradise waiting to be discovered.

Group Tours

There is nothing better than doing an experience than with an exceptional bunch of mates, family or work colleagues.

We offer group discounts for groups of 6 or more people and can also create custom tours on request. Whether it’s a birthday party, work Christmas party, women’s only trip or teambuilding exercise we’d love to work with you to make this happen.

  • “Overall, it was one of the highlights of our 3-week trip to New Zealand”

    One of the highlights

  • “Kayaking at night feels daringly intrepid – as if we’re secret agents on a covert mission. For the next hour we paddle towards the city;s twinkling lights under a sky pinpricked with stars. It’s my favorite part of the trip. The only sound is the rhythmic splash of the paddles in the water. No one speaks, not even my sister.”

The first Hine Moana young women's programme set off this morning in beautiful calm paddling conditions. They will spend 2.5 days exploring the waterways if the Mahurangi region, with an exciting talk from @redznzjourney tomorrow afternoon. Then @nz_sailingtrust will sail up and collect the rangatahi and they learn to sail the famous yacht safely back to Tamaki Makaurau, Auckland. They were excited and we can't wait to hear the stories at the end of the week @dukeofednz @visitauckland
Wētāpunga - Out paddling in the Hauraki Gulf we spotted a  beautiful Wētāpunga on one of the off shore pest free islands . Adult wētāpunga are the heaviest insects on the  planet, heavier than an average house sparrow. #stilllearning

Another great event organized by @emr_nz at Taumanu Reserve, Onehunga. Participants learned about local wildlife and conservation projects. We explored mangroves and what makes this harbour so special. Thanks EMR for including us 📷by EMR with @backcountryweb doing his thing
Kayak instruction with a different view today. Westhaven beach is right in the heart of Auckland and has a unique view looking back over the city and sky tower. The water is nearly always flat and you can paddle right under the harbour bridge for a bit of excitement @visitauckland
Just arrived at Motuora island which is our home for the night. We are out with a local high school exploring their local area.  It was a fun down wind paddle from the mainland with loads of waves to surf #outdooreducation  #doc @visitauckland
Teaching people about how wonderful the Tamaki estuary is. Thanks @emr_nz for having us along
Skills training before next week's multiday trip with Mahurangi College. @burto1 you legend!
It's just Autumn in Auckland today #rangitoto here we come @visitauckland
Finishing the day with an epic sunset from Motuihe island. We are staying here for a multi day trip with a local high school. Amazing place to stay with kiwi, tautara to name a few 📸superguideeric
Sun's out, guns out. Stunning weather for three days of exploring the Cavalli islands in the tropical far north.
