Duke of Edinburgh Hillary Award

Duke of Edinburgh's Hillary Award

Auckland Sea Kayaks has a strong reputation for delivering, developing and monitoring young adults through this personal and individual challenge.

The Duke of Edinburgh's Hillary Award introduces young people to exciting, positive, challenging and enjoyable things to do in their free time. Sea Kayaking is a great way to fulfil the requirements for the expeditions and we have worked with many schools to achieve this is a friendly, safe and professional manner. We do this by allowing the participants the freedom to achieve their goals in a safe and monitored fashion.

Our guides are very experienced and skilled sea kayakers with a personal commitment and passion for conservation and kayaking. Their knowledge of the area, understanding of the weather systems, educational training and knowing the requirements for this award will make your journey enjoyable and safe.
