    Why You'll Love This

    What's Included?

    On the day of your adventure we will pick you up from your accommodation in the Tauranga area and take you on a 45 minute drive through the famous mural town of Katikati to the Pohutukawa (New Zealand Christmas tree) fringed coast of Kauri Point.

    When you arrive you will be given a full safety briefing and instructions before being set up with your kayak. We will begin with a leisurely paddle across the beautiful Tauranga Harbour over to Bowentown, taking in views of the mystical Kaimai Ranges along the way.

    While you are kayaking you will explore the crystal clear waters off the coast of Matakana Island. This area is rich in history and abundant in bird and sea life. You might see dolphins, stingray or even orca!

    We land the kayaks on the sandy golden beaches of Anzac Bay. From here you have the choice to walk up to a Maori Pa site. This site is rich in history and offers outstanding views of the area. Alternatively you can opt for a swim in the safe waters of Anzac or Shelly Bay.

    You will then paddle back to the departure point and we will transport you to your accommodation in Tauranga.
