3 of us plus our dog Duchess went Kayaking. Kelvin was very thorough with safety and explanations. We were perfectly safe at all times, including Duchess even though it was her first time. We bought a safety jacket for her, so she was fine even when she fell off the kayak 3 times! LOL! None of us fell in, only Duchess.
The views and experience was well worth it. Highly recommended.

Exceeded expectations, Kelvin was a friendly and informative host, we thoroughly enjoyed the kayak trip with our family, it's a beautiful area and Te Aroha has lots to offer with the walks, cafes, wetlands, Kaimai ranges, views and friendly locals.

We had a very pleasant and relaxing evening kayak. Enjoyed the peace and solitude with the beautiful Kaimai range backdrop.
The historic drive around Te Aroha was great too. We appreciated the care and attention to all details given by Kelvin for the safety aspects of the trip. This was a birthday present from our children - a great gift. Thoroughly recommended - you will not be disappointed.

Fantastic family friendly Kayak trip ! we had 3 adults and two kids 11 & 3 year old and all had a great morning . We were able to have a double for with our youngest and he had a blast .

Kelvin gives a insightful and fun wee guide around Te Aroha first before taking you to the river and giving you all the guidance you will need before heading off down the gentle flowing river .
Safe and fun for all ages you just go faster or paddle upstream ; ) highly recommend

Really enjoyed this kayak. The tour was interesting. Kelvin is a great guide. The kayak was not challenging and is perfect for families and no problems for people without kayaking experience. Can drift or paddle so very relaxing.
