Wanting to learn the skill for kayaking to compete in multisport events?


We can teach you how to be safe out there on the river while training, as well as teach you how to go fast and stay in your boat.


If you are needing your Grade 2 certificate for the Coast to Coast, we are approved assessors. Under New Zealand's Adventure Activity Regulations anybody commercially offering training or assessment in kayak skills need to be able to provide clients with their Audit certification. Kaituna Kayaks are audited by Adventure Mark to guide and teach kayaking, and we have a number of excellent teaching rivers in our area.

Our 3 day course will cover everything needed for the Grade 2 certificate, for 1st time whitewater paddlers we recommend doing a few days instruction before booking on the full grade 2 course or have at least been on a river in a kayak before.
