These are some of the great places we can take you to in the North Island of New Zealand. No matter if you are a class 2 boater looking for rivers that are challenging but not overly so or if you are a hardcore extremist then we can definitely help you put together a kayaking package that cannot be beaten! If you are looking for just one day or you’re after two weeks of boating then we can help. We have all the gear you need, qualified, experienced guides, transport, great lunches and of course we guarantee you will have a fantastic time! We can organise something to suit your budget, if you want to camp out….great, if you want to stay in a hotel then we can arrange that too! Talk to us about what you’d like, we’re flexible so can normally structure a great package to meet all your needs.
