Safety instructions clear and sufficient with equipment of a high standard. We were taken to herald island by car and then a lovely calm paddle for about an hour and a half down to theRiverhead pub. Recommended

Logan, Ella and the crew were amazing! We had such a great time and were looked after very well. Shame the weather didn’t quite play ball but it didn’t affect us one bit. Thanks guys!

I've no experience in kayaking but this was great fun and manageable in a 2 person kayak. About an hour of kayaking each way; absolutely amazing coming back in the dark. Really enjoyed the hike to watch the sunset and coming back down with torches...More

I did a sunset tour to Rangitoto Island with my adult son in a twin seater kayak. I chose him because he was bigger and stronger than me in case I wasn’t up to the approximate hour paddle each way. I needn’t have worried, it...More

We had a fantastic trip to Rangitoto with Jono. Sunset up Rangitoto and kayaking back at night were amazing. Thanks Jono, an excellent and very competent Guide.
