We stopped by one morning, trying to decide whether to kayak or sup, or whatever it was going to be. Nick gave us a lovely warm welcome, and was talking us through the options when he got an update there were orca in the bay. After a quick check we were competent kayakers, he got us on the water immediately and joined us, so we could watch the orca cruising along the shore.
He gave another quick check on the water, then left us to the most amazing hour long paddle as we drifted around the bay, following and watching the orca - that'll stick with me forever.
Thank you Nick, for putting the opportunity of an amazing experience ahead of form filling!

Hired paddle boards for our children ($25/hr) and the service was great from start to finish. All gear was excellent and the kids got some pointers before heading out to make their time as enjoyable as possible. Great experience for third and an hour was more than enough time. Would highly recommend this to other families with teenagers.

Dan was extraordinarily accommodating and friendly. He took plenty of time to insure I had the right bike for my size and riding plans. The bike was in excellent condition and worked great for doing both Waitangi mountain bike park and the Twin Coast cycle trail.
He suggested excellent routes for my cycling interest.

Did not pre book just rocked up. Friendly welcome and simple transaction to hire. Very helpful that we were offered a dry bag for valuables. We chose one hour ($30 each) option provided plenty of time to go around the nearby island and some.

We come to Paihia every year and always take a kayak out from Bay Beach hire. Nick always goes above and beyond to ensure you have a good time with great quality equipment. This is always a great experience and Nick is an outstanding and very helpful guy.

My sister and I enjoyed our kayaking and paddleboard experience. The staff was super friendly! Although we were a bit confused about how many people could paddleboard at once, we figured it out in the end. The weather was great and the prices were reasonable.

Had a great time on the Bay of Islands kayaking around the islands. Nick & Bay Beach Hire were very helpful and provided us with kayaks and gear so we could paddle the 20km to Urupukapuka & back. We had a 3 day stay on the Bay and Nick kept us up to date on weather conditions and any other information we may have needed to get around while we were there. We camped on Urupukapuka Island and the kayaks we hired managed to carry all our gear.

Thanks to the very friendly guy at Bay Beach Hire. I just hired a bike for one day.
He was very exerted to find the right one for me, although there were a lot of other clients. Furthermore always with a smile and ready for a joke :-)

I had the opportunity to spend a couple of days in the Bay of Islands and wanted to sea kayak. All the other outfitters only had sit-on-top kayaks and would not a allow a solo kayaker like myself to go out alone. I shared my extensive experinence with Dan and he decided to take a chance on me. I really wanted a sea kayak with a spray skirt that was more sea worthy to paddle. Dan told me that he had some at home and he'd be willing to bring in he next day for me. It turned out to be a pretty sweet boat. I went out for a few hours with the agreement that I'd check in via phone periodically so he knew I was safe and stayed within the agreed upon route. It was towards the end of my paddle when I realized that the boat I was in was no rental. It was too nice. When I asked Dan, he confirmed it was his personal kayak. "Are you kidding me? You did that for me?", I asked. " I have good friends who wouldn't even lend me their boat", I said. Thanks to Dan I had a fantastic time paddling a great boat and could not have been more pleased. Thanks Dan! I'll see you the next time.

We are Kiwis who kayak a lot in the Marlborough Sounds and were up north so decided to try out the Bay of Islands. We went along to Bay Beach Hire and had the most fantastic service you could imagine. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly and worked hard to get us out onto the water as quick as possible. We took a double kayak out to Urupukapuka Island and camped overnight. The kayaking was easy and amazing and the boaties very considerate. But it was the service from Bay Beach Hire that was a standout. It is good to know that small businesses can operate in a professional friendly way that does the local community and NZ proud. Thanks for being exceptional, totally recommend as the place to go in Piahia.
