Me and a buddy paddled the Puhoi River with these guys. It were awesome, Cody and Kathy were so welcoming and helpful, and the paddle itself (from Puhoi to Wenderholm) was stunning. Highly recommended, will definitely go again!

We visited this highly popular Pub outside of Auckland on a cold Sunday afternoon in July and had lunch and drinks. The Pub is very popular with bikers (mostly over the age of 40) and anyone who is into leather. The food is typical Pub Grub with excellent burgers, large portions and reasonably priced. The bar is full of memorabilia... More

We booked five kayaks on a Friday afternoon as a very late (March!) staff Christmas event. Luckily the weather played along, and we had a fabulous trip up-river (with the incoming tide), to the eventual landing spot, then dinner at the Puhoi pub. Kath and the team from Puhoi River Canoe Hire were absolutely professional, lifejackets, maps, instructions and encouragement... More

We found the canoe hire really easily. The lady was so helpful and gave us all the information we needed to have a great 8km trip down the river. There were toilet facilities and she was able to give us waterproof bags for our belongings. We began at Puhoi and ended at Wenderholme. The lady was there ready to pick... More

We hired a Canadian style canoe and took our 6 year old grandson on the trip from Puhoi down to Wenderholme. Life jackets supplied and pre embarkation advice and maps supplied. Departure timed to meet the change of the tide so it was with us all the way down, 8 kms. We took our time and had lunch enroute, easy... More

We arrived ready to hire one river kayak and put mine in too, Kathy gauged we were experienced and hired a kayak appropriate to our level. I was particularly impressed with the briefing, the map on the hired kayak and the well set up toilets, this operation is well thought through and therefore set up. In all we paddled for... More

Had a fantastic time doing the 'full river adventure" at Puhoi. We went to Puhoi first, got an introduction, a map and off you go onto the tidal river through bush, farmland and mangroves. SOOO peaceful and so easy - no waves so no worries of tipping over :-)))... so we pottered along for a few hours all the way... More

The house on the river is easy to find and the couple who operate the hire are easy going and informative. They share their love of nature and brief on what to expect and set you off. There was no time restriction on returning. My husband and I decided to add the two river feeder rivers we were told about... More

I am so impressed with this company. Right from the start when I emailed them, I received prompt and full responses. They made it easy. The trip itself is excellent and there's a relaxed atmosphere even though you are paddling quite a distance - about 8 kms over a 2 hour period. We began our trip at lovely Wenderholm and... More
