Bay of Islands Paddle Boarding

Cruise + Paddleboarding

Learn & Explore by Paddle board

All Ages, Fun & Easy to Learn!

We cruise along our local coastline & up a meandering river that in days gone by sailing ships used to load up Kauri Logs. Guests now transfer to Paddle boards or kayak where they slide silently along the water and explore by paddle board through mangrove forests, get up close to nesting sea birds or face to face with a roaring waterfall. At the waterfall the fun & adrenaline starts, here even first timers can safely experience paddling in foaming white water or even paddle under the waterfall itself!

Learn one of the worlds fastest growing sports, its easy with no experience necessary.

We paddle safe, calm waters & our charter boat takes you to the best locations being on hand if you need a rest. Private Guided Tours also available.

We Depart From:

Parking can be difficult in Paihia, so we depart from Waitangi where parking is FREE. Simply drive north from Paihia along the waterfront, past the roundabout & across the one way bridge then turn left, we are 200 meters at a small stone wharf on the left, just after the boat ramp.
