This kayaking experience was incredible. Bex took us out an told us some of the history of the area. We stopped for lunch after a few hours and Bex set up a delicious, homemade meal, complete with coffee and cookies! We were sad that we couldn't spend more time out there but are already planning our next trip to Wanaka.

We just showed up at the beach in Wanaka and met Chris & Bex there. They are the nicest people around, super helpful and super flexible, and they have a bunch of different suggestions for things you can do in Wanaka, from small one hour missions to full day trips. Kayaks, SUP and sail-catamaran is their main thing, but they're... More

We met Bex & Chris at the beach in Wanaka. They are awesome people. They have a great setup where you can learn kayaking, stand-up paddling and sailing (though they sailing catamarans were out for maintenance when we visited). You can go freedom kayaking on your own around the beautiful lake or go on organised trips. Whatever you want to... More

My husband and I were recently in Wanaka for our honeymoon. We decided to go kayaking. The 2 staff here were great and explained things well. This was my first time ever Kayaking and absolutely loved it. Very pretty spot. We will be back

We had an amazing afternoon freedom kayaking around the bay on lake Wanaka - Bex and Chris were fantastic, really accommodating and encouraging. They gave us loads of safety and technique instruction and gave us confidence to paddle with our little experience. They also looked after us really well - checking in on the phone and even sneakily driving up... More

Arriving in Wanaka at around 4pm and only one day in town, we wanted to do something before nightfall. We jumped at the first activity we came across and decided to give it a go. So pleased we did, because the next day it snowed!!! Wow, what great fun this was. A quick run through with instructions, life jackets etc... More

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic time on the lake considering the weather was a little less then ideal. The wind was a little bit strong and no sun. The employees were a little nervous about letting us go out considering the weather, we wanted two single kayaks but we could only take a tandem, less worry for them... More
