A great morning!

Thank you for running this great session. Neither of us had kayaked before, so we're a bit nervous about managing the distance etc without a guide and within the time limit. We needn't have worried as the guy (sorry can't remember his name) explained the map and basic paddling methods. We had an amazing morning paddling around Lake Wanaka, taking in the fantastic views We got out to stop on one of the beaches for a break, but found it a bit tough getting in and out of the water etc so after that, carried straight on to the end. We managed to complete the route in just over 2.5 hrs. In future, I'd take a nice little picnic and rest up a bit more and chill. A highlight of our trip!

Great kayak

Overall a great experience. I liked being dropped off further around the lake so it felt like we had the lake to ourselves. Only negative thing I would say is I can't imagine it would ever take anybody 4 hours to do the kayak - so it really is a 3 hour experience.

Hi Helen, thanks for your review! The Mission is a great option to get out & explore in your own time, which is why we allocate 3-4 hours. Often people stop off for a picnic or a swim allow the way or simply to relax & take in the views. Thanks for chosing us! Paddle Wanaka.

Beaut day, wonderful experience.

Awesome. Absolutely loved this experience. Not only did we get to blat around the lake at our own pace, we were picked up by water taxi and returned to shore at the end! Simply the best way to see Wanaka and it's surrounds.
