    City pick up location

Auckland Sea Kayaks offers a free city pick up upon request

Our pickup location is the Auckland Museum Atrium (google map click here).

This will need to be requested on your booking form when booking online. We pick up with our mini-van from outside the Atrium next to the seats.

The Auckland War Memorial Museum, Tāmaki Paenga Hira, is one of New Zealand’s most important museums and war memorials. Its collections concentrate on New Zealand history, natural history, and military history. The taonga (treasures) from Māori, the peoples of Oceania and New Zealand, and our natural world are waiting to be discovered across three floors of magnificent galleries. A great place to learn and explore before heading out, or after paddling with us.
