First time kayakers and we had a great experience. It was harder work than we thought it would be. The instructors were very good and explained every thing very well. The food was very nice and so was the service.

Thanks so much for coming Sophie! You did an amazing job! Ed's very glad to have kept his strike rate up! The leaning back is always the hardest, it's all smooth sailing from there! Enjoy your trip to NZ!

We wouldn't rent rollerblades there again. The rollerblades were really worn out, with bad/no brakes etc. You could only rent them for 1.5 or 4 hours, which isn't flexible and therefore not very customer friendly. Bottom line: Not worth the price.More
