Top class guide - bonded with our 17-year old and made sure us oldies got over and back safely. Challenging trip but worth it. They even grilled up a steak on the island with a little portable cookeer

Big shout out to our guide Tom for an amazing and uniqure experience on our trip to Rangitoto. Our group of 5 women were not experienced kayakers but he gave us the confidence, support and reassurance to have a fun time. Dietary needs were catered for with our bbq dinner and then brownies were bought out as dessert when we reached the summit -a nice touch.Sunset was gorgeous, weather was perfect and coming home in the dark with virtually just us on the water was incredibly calming and uplifting Would highly reccommend this trip. Well done Tomv

We have just moved to NZ and wanted to do some sea kayaking before leaving Auckland. Despite a reasonably brisk wind, Nic (our guide/the owner) organised a brilliant paddle. We specifically asked for single kayaks rather than double and Nic was really accommodating. The boats and all the gear were good quality. Nic and his group were great fun and really informative about the area and made us feel super welcome. They shared lots of knowledge with us and made the trip really enjoyable. The trip across to motukorea island was stunning. We stopped on the beach for a quick cuppa and a brownie (Nic is well stocked with every kind of hot drink and plenty of juice)...We then climbed to the summit of the island (a short walk) for stunning views of surrounding islands and view back to Auckland. Nic picked us up and returned us to the city centre making the whole trip easy and uncomplicated. Would defiantly recommend this trip if you have a spare half day. I also think the rangitoto island trip would be amazing.

We are inexperienced paddlers but fit and keen for adventure. We had a marvellous trip, starting in full sunshine at St. Helliers Beach where we were given a thorough briefing and fully geared up. We had a great dinner on the jetty that was prepared by Tom and then had time on the island to watch the sun go down over the city before paddling back. As we came back the full moon appeared over the island and we could see the Harbour Bridge and city all lit up. Highly recommended.
