Discover a little slice of untouched paradise as you kayak down the hidden waterways of Papatowai...
Take our comfortable Kayaks out for a self guided tour of the breathtaking Papatowai estuary, Tahakopa Bay, Tahakopa & MacLennan rivers.
With over 25km's of estuary and rivers to explore, there is plenty to discover!
You will be well supported with paddling instruction, maps and a full safety briefing along with local river knowledge to make sure you get the most out of the experience.
Meet at our kayak shed in Papatowai for the safety briefing before heading out on the water for your adventure! From here the choice is yours, explore the sandy coastal bays surrounded by lush Podocarp forest or head upstream on the peaceful rivers. Either way you will surely spot an abundance of native birds and local wildlife, so remember to bring that camera!
We offer two New Zealand made kayaks to choose from, the "Fortress Double" and "Phantom Single". These kayaks are very comfortable and incredibly stable, you will be gliding through the water with ease! Perfect for those looking for a relaxing morning or afternoon out on the water, this region is set to surprise even the most seasoned of explorers!
