My family and I spent a glorious Sunday on the beautiful catamaran, then kayaking around Moutohora island off Whakatāne. Kenny is enthusiastic, kind and knowledgeable about the island and surrounds. We would highly recommend this tour.

We did a freedom kayak but we were well set up with a map and route where we would see the best wee views and potentially see some marine life! Was such a cool experience. These guys were great at helping us get into the water, and super easy to deal with. Wicked area, wicked people. Thanks so much

Fantastic day out. Sailed out to Whale island on a very nice Catamaran then lauched the Kayaks off the yacht at the island. Weather was perfect so we paddled right around the island and finished up with a lovely swim at hot water bay. Kenny was a great guide and was a fountain of knowledge about the island. Highly recommend this tour.

We loved the freedom kayaking! The Ohiwa Harbour is a real paradise and with the extensive knowledge and assistance of Kenny and his team, it was an unforgettable experience both times! We'll be back, for sure! :)
