“Unique - and thrilling - evening kayak adventure to Rangitoto!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2017

Apparently, only a few tours had gone this summer due to weather, but we got very lucky and had a beautiful evening for this amazing tour. Shae was so thorough, helpful, and knowledgeable guiding us through the shipping channel as we dodged ferries, launches and sailboats. The hike up Rangitoto through lush New Zealand foliage was rewarded with brilliant pink clouds from the sunset. The paddle back under the stars was easier - and warmer - than we expected... the seas calm, the Auckland city lights beautiful. The finishing touch... our paddles igniting the bio-luminescents in the water. We highly recommend this special experience with the professionals at Fergs.

“Night experience is Something else”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2017 via mobile

We had lucked out on the weather on our trip, it took us about 2hrs each way, the way back at night was really special, it was very calm, warm and beautiful coming back towards the city lights. Shae even pointed out bio-illuminescence in the water which was very cool as our kayaks lit up the water.
We felt well guided by Shae who was knowledgable and thorough with guiding us through the shipping channel. Really worth while!

“Awesome adventure,”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2017 via mobile

I've never gone kayaking before and I was a little nervous, but Ben was so helpful in giving me tips and grabbing me a few photos, which turned out great!

It's an awesome experience, I would recommend it to my friends and try it again. I just wish, they had ½ half rentals... But that's just me.

Cheers!

“Superb experience for a big group”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2017

We took a group of teenagers (50) on the guided paddle to Rangitoto. The Ferg's crew handled the kids with ease. The weather was not our friend but they all had a fantastic time. The guides kept everyone safe and happy all day.
Simon and his crew raced to pick up the stragglers that ended up at different beaches. amazing attentive service.
