Kayaking

Sea kayaks. We offer sea kayaking trips throughout the year.

Our sea-kayaking takes place on protected or sheltered waters such as the Marlborough Sounds, Abel Tasman, North Island lakes or Wellingtons harbours.

All kayak trips are lead by experienced club members and most are organised with the help of a kayak company.

To join a kayak trip you must be:

  • physically fit (with a strong back) and
  • able to swim

The kayak grades are:

EasyNo prior experience required
MediumStrenuous, not necessary technically challenging
May require some prior experience

The kayak company usually provide:

  • kayaks (usually double kayaks)
  • paddling gear 
  • a safety briefing
  • some basic instruction.

Trips are very social in nature and are designed to be enjoyable rather than overly strenuous. 

The club does not run river based white-water trips
