This is the 5th time I have been to Puhoi River Kayaks, and I will go yet again, it is such a lovely 2-3 hour activity, and considering the high cost of so many activities in NZ, it is fair value. Our family of parents and 18 & 20 year old love it, we first went years ago. I've also gone out with a group of girl-friends, really fun. The couple who run the business from their pretty home, with lawns down to the river, are delightful. And the kayaking is easy for parents & children, in comfortable & stable sit-in kayaks. The owners will recommend the start times depending on the tide, so you have an easy paddle. It's a beautiful peaceful 1-2 hour paddle, that's without rushing or having to paddle hard at all. We take a snack and drinks, or sandwiches for lunch, and had a "floating morning tea" at half-way. It's even fun in the only noisy bit, which is under the bridge of the SH1, especially for kids. If you can tie your visit in with the Puhoi Market (which is on the last Sunday morning of every month) it's great to pay that a visit nearby, and coffee/ice creams/pastries at the General Store and Cafe. Or the amazing Puhoi Pub or Puhoi Cheese cafe. Lovely country village atmosphere. The owners even gave us a wonderful contact for our daughter to help her in her work search after Uni. Do go here, it's wonderful.
