"Highly recommend " Great location, good boats, friendly and helpful staff. Try to schedule you trip around high tide and paddle amount the mangrove trees at the edge of the bay. Very cool!

"Horuro Falls, paddle in, hike back" This is an easy (60 minute) paddle followed by a 5k hike through the national park. A great activity that would also be a relatively low impact family adventure. Kayak and gear is fairly low end...

"Kayaking Waitangi. Warning." This is my first bad review.....ever. Do not waste your money. This is not for serious kayakers. Nor is it even close to being an Eco-adventure as billed. I won't ramble on, but if you go on this...
