I booked the day before and they didn't have anyone on the tour but they still found a guide to go with just the 2 of us. We started at 9.30am and our guide Rob was there to meet us. Had a briefing and off we went. We had a fantastic time kayaking out and hiking. Rob knew the place... More

We had a great day trip kayaking to Rangitoto. Booking and organising the trip with Fergs was easy even though it was last minute. The kayaks and gear were really good and our guide was fantastic!

Had a great afternoon/evening kayaking to Rangitoto with Fergs. Our guide was knowledgeable and very safety conscious - important to me as a first timer - but still great fun and just the right person to spend several hours in a kayak with. this is a great way to see the city and get out on the water

Very well organised - great knowledgeable guide and safety was of paramount. We were lucky enough to be the only two on the trip so could go at our own pace. Would highly recommend

We rented four bikes from Fergs Kayaks for a ride along the water front. The service was friendly and the store was nice with a large selection of kayaks and paddle boards. The bikes on the other had were not so great. This was a last minute choice without much research. I was hoping for a basic mountain bike but... More

I hate to do this, as I'm a very fair kind of guy... On Sunday November 9, 2014, I booked a day-trip to Rangitoto for a mate and I. I gave my credit card details over the phone, but instead of one charge of $300, my card was accidentally charged twice - $600 in total. Annoying (as I'm not a... More

We booked a tour for 16 of us on a Saturday, and were very excited. Because of strong winds, the trip was postponed to the next Saturday. The day before the next Saturday, Ferg Kayaks called to ask to postpone again, because one of their guides was hospitalized and they didn't have enough guides. It was quite frustrating because our...
