Flow with the Oahu Channel, lined by beautiful scenery and home to a host of wildlife, during this self-guided kayaking tour. Paddle downstream to Lake Rotoiti and down the lake's Okere Arm, where you will be picked up and transferred back to the base in Rotorua Airport.
Paddle out with your group of four and discover all the sights and delights of the Ohau Channel at your own pace. You'll be armed with everything you need for your self-guided adventure including all equipment, maps and information. Start by practicing on Lake Rotorua if required, before heading out through the gates onto the channel. The first half of the paddle consists of slow-moving water and takes you down the channel, brimmed by picturesque scenery and home to an abundance of wildlife. Keep an eye out for low hanging trees and other obstacles as you head downstream. Once you reach the channel exit, you will head out into Lake Rotoiti and the Okere Arm, featuring very slow moving water. Once finished, you will be transferred back to base.

RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
