The acclaimed “Paddle to the Pub” kayak trip departs from Herald Island. Maps and full safety briefings are provided before clients make their way to the Historic Riverhead Tavern.

Motukorea (Browns Island) Twilight Tour

Bring your workmates on our Motukorea Browns island kayak twilight tour. It ticks all of your outdoor-loving adventure boxes.

A favourite amongst those in the know, Browns Island (also known as Motukorea) is only accessible by private craft and is one of the best-preserved volcanoes in the Auckland Volcanic Field. This trip is suitable for small or large group sizes, includes a full BBQ dinner and we are able to cater for all dietary requirements.

Located to the south of Rangitoto Island and Motutapu Island, Browns Island provides gorgeous views back towards the city. Best of all, because you’ll be the only ones there, it will be impossible to do anything but relax and enjoy the stunning scenery that Hauraki Gulf Marine Park is so well-known for.

Can you think of a better place to go sunset kayaking in the middle of Auckland?

We have special pricing on these tours for this time of year and can cater for all size groups. We look forward to paddling with you all this festive season.

Ain't no office better than the Hauraki Gulf 💯☀️

Team New Zealand @emiratesteamnz training on the Hauraki Gulf yesterday. They tried to keep up with our kayaks but I think they had the wrong foils on 😂
Beautiful jellyfish found on the shoreline at Motukorea. Any marine biologists out there have some intel on this cool creature? @emr_nz
