Kayaking was great fun

On the day of the tour I checked my emails to find that that bay of islands tour had been cancelled due to the weather however I rang up to see if I could change he tour to the Haruru falls one and the staff helped me do this with no trouble at all. All the staff were great fun, made great conversation and even gave us tips on where to go and eat afterwards.

Its all part of the package here at Coastal Kayakers, we love helping you plan your next meal or the rest of your trip around NZ. We only run safe and enjoyable tours so if the weather is not playing ball we will definitely cancel and either offer you another option, day or refund you. Thank you, Cydney for taking the time to write an amazing review we really appreciate it. The Coastal Kayakers Team

Great experience

Our tour guide Chris was great - also very knowledgable about the history and culture within the area. Everyone in the group was welcoming and sociable throughout the tour. Highly recommend this tour and Costal Kayakers - they were all friendly, chilled and had a good sense of humour!

Great kayaking trip

Our original tour was cancelled due to expected bad weather but the team transferred us to another tour paddling down from Haruru Falls. It was a great couple of hours of easy paddling, with some interesting stories and historical tales. A fun game at the end completed our trip. The bonus of free photos emailed to us was really appreciated. I will definitely come back here for another tour next time I’m in Paihia.

We understand how frustrating bad weather can be on holidays but we appreciate your adventurous spirit and are thrilled you could join us on the Waterfall Discovery Tour instead. Our guides are experts at fun and loved being your personal paparazzi. Fingers crossed that next time you visit us the weather will play ball and we can go on another adventure with you! Thanks again Sarah

Great way to see the bay

Really enjoyed our half-day tour. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Paddling can be a good workout but when you're in a 2-person kayak there's room to relax too! Would definitely recommend.

Thank you, Alex, for taking the time to write such a lovely review. Our Bay of Islands tours is a great way to see the Bay and learn a little about the history and Maori legends. The big stable double sea kayaks make it fun and enjoyable.
