About New Zealand Sea Kayak Adventures
Fully catered kayak camping trips for 3, 7 or 10 days We provide sea kayaking tours and expeditions in Northland, New Zealand within the Bay of Islands and the surrounding outer coast. Instruction at both novice and advanced levels, is included. As one of the first sea kayak operators/outfitters in New Zealand - with over 29 years experience in this area - we continue to be passionate about our trips! Our trips are usually small groups and we can customise the experience. Count on delicious meals with local produce, the possibility of freshly caught seafood and baked desserts. We specialise in leading adventurous ocean kayaking trips! Technical paddling and deep water re-entry safety skills are taught on most trips. We get out to areas not visited by other tour operators. Rock gardening, sea caves and kayak surfing are available for those looking for additional challenge! Attention to detail...whether it be the meals we serve, our care for the environment, the equipment we provide or our risk management is always carefully carried out. Guides are First Aid and CPR trained and the head guides hold SKOANZ guides qualifications. Customised kayak trips can be arranged during the off season from May - November for group of any size.

We have just returned from a 5-day Bay of Islands trip with NZSKA and are still savouring the experience. The trip was excellent from beginning to end: exquisite bays, a beautiful base campground, delicious food, wonderful energy, and to top it all an exceptionally competent and skilled guide — Magnus— whose knowledge of the ocean bays, natural history, and local culture are extraordinary! He generates wonderful energy and is highly tuned to the needs of the group, without any fuss whatsoever. The food was excellent, and our dietary restrictions accommodated. This is an excellent workout for body and soul. Don’t hesitate to signup with NZSKA if you are thinking of a Bay of Islands trip. We are very well-travelled and this is one of the best!

A great trip in a special place. The guides revealed the wonder of this island taking advantage of weather and the environment. A step back in time and a great way to break from the ordinary into the extraordinary.

We had a fabulous time exploring stunning landscapes in the Bay of Islands with our guide, Magnus. He was very knowledgeable of the area's cultural and natural history, which enriched our experience in an otherwise unfamiliar place. The meals were well-organized, fresh and delicious! Magnus was engaging and encouraged us to develop our skills on the water; with his paddling experience we knew we were safe and in good hands. Would highly recommend NZ Sea Kayak Adventures for exploring the Northland coast!

We had such a great time with Magnus. He's not only an excellent kayaker but also a great chef! We enjoyed very much paddling with him because he could give us some tips and helped us to improve our paddling skills. My husband espacially enjoyed paddling through rock, playing with the kayak. I tried to learn the escimo roll and almost did it. Magnus was very patient and very helpful. The food he prepared for us was just amazing, fresh fruits and vegetables on an expedition trip is just luxury. We even saw orcas, penguins and dolphines. Also the places were we stayed overnight were always in a very nice setting. All in all, it was definitely one of the best trips that we've done so far and I would totally recommend it to everyone who enjoys kayaking and being in the nature!
