Kayaking Trips - Christmas Activity
Kayak to the Pub - fun Christmas Event Auckland
Our most popular kayaking trip! The perfect trip for groups and novices, this trip is very scenic, sheltered and it is usually not difficult to motivate people when the word "pub" is involved!
Being close to Auckland, sheltered and with varied scenery, we highly recommend this trip. Paddling time is 1-1.5 hours at an easy pace.
You get to choose from 2 kayaking trips, either meander your way along the Puhoi River (trip starts and finishes at Wendaholm Regional Park), to the Puhoi Pub. Or cruise up the Rangitopuni Creek (trip starts and finishes at Herald Island), to the Riverhead Tavern.
Food can be ordered at the pub which you can enjoy while drinking an ale or two.
The trip can be run after work, during the day or at weekends, but is high-tide dependent. They can also be run as a one-way trip for those groups who want to stay on at the pub. Just remember, if your doing a return trip, don't drink too much at the pub to avoid becoming a "D-I-C-K" on the way home - Drunk In Charge of Kayak!!
Safety is our first concern. All trips are guided with the emphasis on enjoying the beauty of nature and the coastlines. No experience is needed!
There is no guarantee on good weather. Sometimes, for your safety, trips will need to be postponed due to weather conditions.
A fun event as a Christmas activity as it provides a bit of a challenge, but one that all your staff could manage - we also have a mix of single and double kayaks so if there is some not-so-confident people they can double with a guide or team member.
Because the paddling is done in the same direction as the tide current, it doesnt require too much exertion and the break at the pub in the middle provides time for everyone to socialise together.
This trip runs in conjunction with the tide and the full trip takes about 5 hours.
