Steaming Cliffs Kayak Tour

Amazing experience from start to finish! Very glad we chose to do the steaming cliffs tour at Lake Rotomahana with Paddleboard Rotorua. Our guide Nev was very friendly, patient, and informative - we were newbie kayakers but he made sure we were always comfortable and able to enjoy all the views, which really exceeded our expectations! The pick up service was great too, which was a bonus! Looking forward to doing another tour with these guys already! Thanks a lot!

Little Slice of Paradise

I can't say enough have incredible this trip was. You begin with a gorgeous drive through the countryside to arrive at the water. The guides were very patient and instructive with us as my husband and I learned to work together in our 2 person kayak. There was plenty of smooth waters and amazing scenery before you get to the bigger body of water and make your way toward a hidden enclave. I don't even want to say what happens from there for fear of ruining the magic, but it's just something any adventurer NEEDS to see. It was majestical. Thank you so much for the trip of a lifetime!
