• Employment

A passion for the outdoors is a requisite for employment at Auckland Sea Kayaks. Our staff are all highly qualified and experienced in a variety of different adventure activities. They are fun, friendly and above all, safety conscious.

A lot of hard work has got these skilled guides to where they are now, if you think you’ve got what it takes to join our team please send your cover letter and CV with your qualifications to nic@aucklandseakayaks.co.nz

All adventure activities involve inherent risk of harm. The degree of risk varies among activities and locations. Auckland Sea Kayaks takes all practicable steps to manage the risks and deliver adventure activities safely while keeping alive the sense of adventure and excitement.

To protect the health and safety of staff and participants engaged in adventure activities, and to protect New Zealand’s reputation as a world-leading provider of adventure activities, the Government introduced regulations in 2011 to ensure operators have sound safety management systems in place.

The current regulations are the Health and Safety at Work (Adventure Activities) Regulations 2016. They were made under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015, which is referred to as HSWA. The regulations require commercial operators who provide adventure activities, as defined by the regulations, to pass safety audits and become registered by WorkSafe New Zealand (WorkSafe).
