Overview

Canoe & Kayak Advntures offers a variety of sea kayak training and tours in an area that is one of Auckland's best kept secrets. Our guided tours operate just 20 minutes from Downtown Auckland. The Long Bay-Okura Marine Reserve is home to an abundance of wildlife and historic sites. Stingray frequent the bay to feed, and resident rays Mertyl and Turtle are usually the first to pop by to say hello. The bay is also home to a number of rare sea birds, like the NZ Dotterel, the variable oystercatcher and the Godwit. We also cater to groups with tours to the historic Riverhead Tavern & Puhoi settlements.
