Sea Kayak to Motuihe Island

Recently I was fortunate enough to guide one of Auckland Sea Kayaks exceptional 2 day Sea Kayak tours.

This is the only tour of its kind in New Zealand where you can paddle to and from 4 very different islands. The drastically different flora and fauna are so very geologically varied.

Browns Island/Motukorea, Motuihe, Motutapu and Rangitoto.

Everything is supplied with no previous paddle experience necessary.

One lady on the tour has her own Blog and these are her thoughts and experience of the tour.

 

Read and Enjoy.

Her closing thoughts sum up the trip

‘Only one word does it really: awesome!  Awesome harbour, awesome team (and especially our camp leader) and oh my, awesome (in a hushed, awed sort of way) Kiwi.  Can’t wait for option B, the sunset paddle to Rangitoto.  The city always looks better across the water. Thanks Nic.’

Amazing adventures with a Duke of Edinburgh group last weekend. We explored loads of sea caves, learnt about sustainable journeys and the 7 steps of leave no trace @dukeofednz
Stunning morning with flat water as we got set up for another @emr_nz day. Loads of locals learning about how amazing Lake Rototoa is. For those that don't about this amazing sand dune fresh water lake which is located at the northern end of the south head of the Kaipara Harbour should go and check it out. Or even better wait until EMR runs another of their legendary experience days @visitauckland
