What a perfect spot for an expertly run kayak company. It was a long time since I had done any kayaking and so although a bit apprehensive to start with my fears were eradicated once we were 'launched' by Cody and his expert team. Cody's staff were all very knowledgeable and once we had negotiated the clearly descried route down... More

We went down the river on the early morning tide from Puhoi. It's an easy Kayak trip suitable for all the family. The operators are friendly and provide a good service. Once you arrive at the downstream destination a bus us provided yo bring you back to base. A nice relaxing 2 hours down the river and no sore muscles.

This was a great trip from Puhoi 8 km down the river with the tide ending up in the Wenderholm National Park. It was an easy 8km and a good way to see the riverbank and the National Park. The staff were helpful and it was well set up and we were returned to base quickly after we had completed... More

We paddled from Puhoi to Wenderholm and were then bought back to Puhoi. Professional, friendly, safety conscious without being too serious, it was a really good afternoon out - thank you!

We were introduced to this venture by a friend who chose it for her 60th birthday. Her friends and family had a great time on the outgoing tide, canoeing from Puhoi to Wenderholm. With other friends we did the trip again, this time in the opposite direction with incoming tide. The river is peaceful and wider than it looks from... More
