Sea Kayaking

The perfect way to explore the calm turquoise waters around North Island as a couple… Enjoy a gentle work-out paddling in the light swell – with phenomenal views down through the crystal-clear waters to the reefs below. Encounters with harmless rays and dolphins are a real possibility!

Kayaks are the ocean equivalent of a tandem bicycle, making them a perfect activity for two. The currents are mild enough that it is possible to paddle all the way round the Island, stopping off at secluded beaches and secret coves along the way and being the first people in who knows how long to leave your footprints on stretches of pristine white sand – the same beaches where turtles have nested for millennia, and continue to do so.
