I was a little apprehensive about doing kayaking with my work for our Christmas activity. But despite this I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was in a double kayak with my work colleague. Kathy was amazing. Highly recommend this. Didn't even get my feet wet.

A fun activity for a day out with friends. A pub lunch at Puhoi pub a great way to top of the day. We went with two couples . The passel is not difficult so suitable for all levels.

This business is so professional and smoothly run. Easily catered for our group of 17. And even gave away free feijoas from their trees. A bonus!

A lovely paddle along the river through farmland and across the lagoon to the boat ramp where you can get picked up. It doesn't look very far but it was a decent length trip after all. Very enjoyable!
