Initially, my reservation was to be canceled by not meeting the minimum number of participants, but thanks for offering an alternative. Zita was a wonderful instructor. She taught me a few new techniques. So kind and caring, and took many nice photos for me.

Really enjoyed the experience. Tour guide was very friendly and good craic. You get to see bits of Rotorua you wouldn't otherwise. Loved the jumping off rocks and rope swing! Paddle boarding is a great way to see the world, one of the most worth while things we did in Rotorua.

Our guide Matt was amazing, very attentive and kind. He also knew a great deal about native plants and Maori culture. I can't swim but even that didn't stop me from enjoying the spectacular view of the lake. A must do when you're in Rotorua
