Group Kayak Tour to Browns Island

My team of 10 Managers absolutely loved it. The weather was a little challenging but it just added to the experience. Nice work Nick!

No sunset and no phosphorescence, due to mother nature, but a wonderful paddle. It was choppy there and back, but that makes it more adventurous. It is definitely money well spent. We got a taste of Auckland one just doesn't get on shore. Thank you Logan!

My husband and I had a great time on our sunset kayak out to Rangitoto Island with Ryan. Ryan was friendly, easy to talk to and knowledgeable about the kayaks. We took a nice leisurely pace to the island, then Ryan made us steak... yes, steak with quinoa salad and bread. The hike up to the summit was interesting as... More

Poor weather conditions meant my first scheduled paddle had to be cancelled. Thankfully I had some free time in my itinerary and was able to rebook for another day and I'm so glad it worked out. The paddle over was really lovely, and I was glad our guide took us to explore some of the lava caves at the top... More

This was a fantastic tour! Definitely a highlight in my travels. Trip started out kayaking across to Rangitoto, a bit nervous as there were dark rain clouds all around the mainland. Upon arrival we had an awesome dinner before the hike up the volcano. On top of the volcano we had time to check out the surrounding region before sunset.... More

A fabulous day out with Nic exploring the Waiheke coastline - we even saw a seal! Lots of fun paddling in and out of bays, a great way to see a different part of the island - the scenery was great and Nic was a fantastic guide providing some of the local history and a great morning tea. Highly recommend... More

We did the Rangitoto kayak day tour with Nick. He picked us up at the ferry terminal and then we headed to the St Heliers Beach. After a brief safety instruction, we started paddling to Rangitoto Island, it took us about an hour to get there. We were very lucky that the weather was super nice, considering that it has... More

I took the sunset trip to Rangitoto by sea kayak followed by hike to the summit. This was only my second time in a kayak and didn't paddle nearly as far as Rangitoto during my first experience. The paddle and hike took some effort but the experience was well worth it. I didn't feel the effects until later that night... More

I did the sunset Rangitoto kayak tour with Nic, and the trip exceeded all my expectations, it was incredible! Even if you've never kayaked before, Nic can help you get started and give you all the relevant instructions before you set off. The paddle to the island was relatively challenging, but only because I am unfit. The group wasn't rushed,... More
