We had a great day trip kayaking to Rangitoto. Booking and organising the trip with Fergs was easy even though it was last minute. The kayaks and gear were really good and our guide was fantastic!

Had a great afternoon/evening kayaking to Rangitoto with Fergs. Our guide was knowledgeable and very safety conscious - important to me as a first timer - but still great fun and just the right person to spend several hours in a kayak with.

this is a great way to see the city and get out on the water

Very well organised - great knowledgeable guide and safety was of paramount. We were lucky enough to be the only two on the trip so could go at our own pace.
Would highly recommend

A group of us arranged to meet at Fergs at 4pm on Easter Monday for a paddle around the bay. We have done this a few times and checked the hours on their website (which still by the way says 9-6 daily) however on Easter Monday they changed to their winter hours (closing at 4 so last kayak hire is 3.30pm).

As we have done this a number of times in the past at the same time and the hours haven't changed on the website we didn't see there would be an issue however staff did not seem bothered by either the fact that the website is incorrect or that they were turning away a group of paying customers - very disappointing :-(

We rented four bikes from Fergs Kayaks for a ride along the water front. The service was friendly and the store was nice with a large selection of kayaks and paddle boards. The bikes on the other had were not so great. This was a last minute choice without much research. I was hoping for a basic mountain bike but these were very basic bikes kinda like your grandma would ride complete with a bell on the handle bars. The seats would not stay up and the handle bars were at an odd angle so your wrists were in a slightly strained position. We only rode for about an hour so it wasn't to bad. If you are wanting to go longer I would recommend testing the bike before you rent it.
