Kayak Academy/Multiday kayaking adventures

We can tailor a New Zealand kayaking holiday just for you, if it's just one day or 8 days. We kayak 7 different river sections that vary from scenic Grade 2 to full on Grade 4/5.


We paddle the KAITUNA daily so if you just in the area for one day let us know and you can still come do some laps on the Kaituna water falls. For a 2 hour guided trip including all the gear is $160 per person. You will need to show us that your are up to running the waterfalls before we take you down.


If you and your friends want to come to New Zealand for a kayaking holiday and want to experience the best of what the Central North Island has to offer we can help sort everything from airport pick-ups, kayak gear, accommodation, transport and sight seeing.


We specialise in tailor-made trips. If you are an Intermediate to Experienced paddler, we would love to take you kayaking in our backyard and share it with you. Drop us an email and let's get planning your New Zealand kayaking adventure!
