Perfect day

I did the Falls tour and it was fantastic. Chad was very professional, friendly, and patient. He also knew a lot about the birds we spotted along the river as well as the history of the area. I had a great time, I'm glad I did it.

Kayaking with a touch of history

We did the classic waterfall tour and it was fab! Chad and Ollie our guides were super enthusiastic and had the whole group in stitches. Loved the history lesson as we paddled our way through the inlet and past mangroves. Seeing all the wildlife was also a highlight. Highly recommend to anyone up in the bay.

Wow Emily, thank you for the review and for choosing to join us on the Classic Waterfall tour! We quite enjoy Chad and Ollie's humour as well! Almost as entertaining as the Shags ;) We appreciate you recommending us and hope that you will stop by and say hello next time you find yourself in The Bay of Islands! Cheers Emily

Must do during your trip to Paihia!!

This was such an excellent trip, Dora and Chaz (as he likes to be called) looked after us so well and provided us with plenty of water and snacks. the kayak trip was fun (complete with water pistols) and we had a great laugh all the way to the falls. It is definitely doable if you have not kayaked before, and still a good trip if you have. The guide takes great photos and uploads them to the website for free downloading, and dry bags are provided. they also gave us great advice on other things to do from Paihia. Can’t recommend these fantastic people enough!!

Wow thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review, we really appreciate it. Any of our Waterfall tours are amazing and we do change or tour to cater for the clientele on them to ensure maximum fun is had by all. Our guides are all great and we do our best on tour to make it a memorable time for everyone, and we also do our best off tour to help you plan where you're having dinner or the rest of your tour. Free photos are offered so eliminate you having to take your camera or phone on tour, just relax and let us do all the work. The Coastal Kayakers Team
