Nature Cruise With Kayaking to Waterfalls designed for all age's & great value, Perfect for first timers & experienced kayakers. A Safe whitewater experience with lots of wildlife, Boat Cruise, Local history & Great photo opportunities.

We cruise on our vessel along our calm coastline up a meandering river where guests then transfer to kayaks to explore up close, paddle through mangrove forests or photograph a colony of sea birds that nest in trees hanging over the river, then onto our final destination where a waterfall drops into the sea.

At the waterfall the fun & adrenaline starts, here even first timers can safely experience paddling in foaming white water or even kayak under the waterfall itself.

We are an All Age Adventure with mother boat on hand: Our warm vessel is on hand to give you or family a rest if you need.

We work hard & realise the importance of customer satisfaction, good value & having fun.

'Day Cruise & Kayak' Cruise operates at 11am.

'Twilight Safari" Cruise operates at 4pm.

'Night Safari' Cruise operates at 7pm.

Our 7 Points of Difference:

* Extreme Value

* Safer, Boat on hand

* More time for kayaking

* Rest when you or your family want

* Fast Sit on Kayaks that don't Trap you

* Sit on kayaks allow you to go under the Waterfalls

* Night Kayaking & Waterfalls is a brilliant NZ Experience!

Tom the guide has been friendly and full of knowledge of the area. Interesting topics about the properties by the hill, Kelly Tarlton's actual shop and the history of how Haruru Falls was named of course. The kayaks are quite usable and the river is calm enough for beginners. Best to be prepared to get wet and bring devices that... More

Had a wonderful morning Kayaking, the weather was lovely and it was a great experience to have Tom tell us stories about New Zealand while we got to grips with the water. If your going to Paihia and want to go kayaking, these are the people to go to.

Thank Beth M
