FAQ

FAQ’s about Kayaking and Kayak Fishing.
 
  • Q. I’ve never kayaked before, will I be able to do it?
  • A. Of course! Complete novices often make the best kayakers and they definitely have the most fun. We pride ourselves in being able to accommodate people of a wide range of ability levels.  
     
  • Q. What do I need to bring?
  • A. We provide all the necessary equipment for your kayaking experiences. All you need is suitable clothing, a drink bottle and a few snacks.
     
  • Q. Can I bring my camera?
  • A. Yes you can, however we encourage you to leave it home as we always carry a waterproof camera and will send you the photos free of charge.
     
  • Q. Are there any age restrictions for kayaking?
  • A. There are no upper age restrictions for kayaking but certain activities are not recommended for younger children because of the fitness requirements e.g. our half-day fishing experience. If you are looking for a family activity please contact us to discuss the best options.
     
  • Q. Will we see any wildlife?
  • A. There is always a chance of coming across seals, dolphins, orca, and penguins but these events are not guaranteed.
     
  • Q. If we catch a fish on our fishing trip, what will we do with it?
  • A. That's up to you - if you enjoy catch and release we can take a photo before returning it to live another day, or if you want to keep it for your dinner we will expertly fillet it at the end of the trip.  
     
  • Q. I'm afraid to kayak on my own, can I go in a double kayak with a friend?
  • A. Definitely, we have doubles available.    
     
  • Q. I'm a visitor to the Bay of Plenty, can you help arrange accommodation and suggest other suitable activities?
  • A. Yes we can. We absolutely love our region and we know all the best accommodation providers and tour operators. Please send us your inquiry and we will make suggestions or arrangements for you.     
     
  • Q. I'm unsure if my health/age/fitness is suitable for kayaking, can I still go? 
  • A. Please send us an inquiry and we will discuss your needs. In many instances you will be totally fine but it always pays to check with us first. Rest assured that we will keep your questions and personal information in total confidence.   

What our customers say

quote Now I've stopped running I wanted to drop you a line to say a massive thank you for your incredible guiding services to get us across the Cook Strait. You put faith in us, with a lot of unknowns, and it was so cool how we pulled it off. It adds such a special twist to what I've achieved, and I think it will be very difficult to re-create.
 
It's been a very special adventure and we're so grateful for your contribution towards it.
 
Best wishes,
 
Jez Bragg. 
North Face ultra-marathon runner.
