Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a great time on the Bay of Islands kayaking around the islands. Nick & Bay Beach Hire were very helpful and provided us with kayaks and gear so we could paddle the 20km to Urupukapuka & back. We had a 3 day stay on the Bay and Nick kept us up to date on weather conditions and any other information we may have needed to get around while we were there. We camped on Urupukapuka Island and the kayaks we hired managed to carry all our gear.

Such a wonderful place to rent kayaks that we came back a second time in the week. Nick was so helpful and made sure we had everything we needed.

Did not pre book just rocked up. Friendly welcome and simple transaction to hire. Very helpful that we were offered a dry bag for valuables. We chose one hour ($30 each) option provided plenty of time to go around the nearby island and some.

We come to Paihia every year and always take a kayak out from Bay Beach hire. Nick always goes above and beyond to ensure you have a good time with great quality equipment. This is always a great experience and Nick is an outstanding and very helpful guy.

Hired paddle boards for our children ($25/hr) and the service was great from start to finish. All gear was excellent and the kids got some pointers before heading out to make their time as enjoyable as possible. Great experience for third and an hour was more than enough time. Would highly recommend this to other families with teenagers.

Thanks to the very friendly guy at Bay Beach Hire. I just hired a bike for one day.
He was very exerted to find the right one for me, although there were a lot of other clients. Furthermore always with a smile and ready for a joke :-)

Dan was extraordinarily accommodating and friendly. He took plenty of time to insure I had the right bike for my size and riding plans. The bike was in excellent condition and worked great for doing both Waitangi mountain bike park and the Twin Coast cycle trail.
He suggested excellent routes for my cycling interest.

We stopped by one morning, trying to decide whether to kayak or sup, or whatever it was going to be. Nick gave us a lovely warm welcome, and was talking us through the options when he got an update there were orca in the bay. After a quick check we were competent kayakers, he got us on the water immediately and joined us, so we could watch the orca cruising along the shore.
He gave another quick check on the water, then left us to the most amazing hour long paddle as we drifted around the bay, following and watching the orca - that'll stick with me forever.
Thank you Nick, for putting the opportunity of an amazing experience ahead of form filling!

My sister and I enjoyed our kayaking and paddleboard experience. The staff was super friendly! Although we were a bit confused about how many people could paddleboard at once, we figured it out in the end. The weather was great and the prices were reasonable.
