Bay of Islands Kayaking

Kayaking - Paihia
Price: Starting from NZ $80 per person

We offer guided Sea Kayak and Kayak Fishing Tours based in Paihia, Northland, New Zealand. Also if you want to do it solo we can sort out Kayak Rentals or check out our Store to kit yourself out to start your own adventure.

Our Kayak tours start from a fun day tour to custom planned multi day tours in the upper North Island of NZ. Our mission is to offer you an unforgettable New Zealand experience and we know that its our guides that make this possible. They are the backbone to Bay of Islands Kayaking and are hand selected for their skills on the water and their great personalities. We pride ourselves on keeping group numbers small and personal so we can do what everyone wants ... keeping a smile on your dial!


Because we are out in the Islands the water is always sheltered and calm, perfect for first timers and people of all ages. Lucky for us and you we operate in paradise with crystal clear water, marine life everywhere, white sand beaches and amazing weather all year. We are the only company that offers day trips out to the main Islands of the Bay where the water is electric blue and where the big marine mammals like Dolphins and Whales usually hang out.

We provide a range of tours, and can customise personal and private tours to suit you. Choose from;
  • Kayak Rentals
  • Full and Half Day Tours
  • Kayak Fishing - Half Day and Full Day
  • Exclusive and Multi Day Trips

Our Day Tours departs daily and includes pick up from your accommodations in Paihia (Russell on Request). Both day tours include snorkelling gear and lunch. After leaving Paihia we head to Opua to jump on the car ferry over to Okaito (NZ's first Capital) on our way to Russell.

From here we head off on our hour long scenic drive along the stunning coastal road to Rawhiti where we start Kayaking. This coastline is a piece of true NZ with small kiwi baches and breathtaking views and always time for a few photos.
