Kayak hire - Hot Water Beach/Hahei

Hi there,

I have troubles finding a place where we could hire kayaks, in either Hot Water Beach or Hahei on the Coromandel peninsula. I have only found organised kayak tours, but that does not appeal to us much (I do not like the tours because they sell something we do not need, unnecessary drinks or food, plus we like to go our own speed, plus they tend to be pricy).

Would you please have any suggestions where we could hire kayaks in this area?

Many thanks,

We stayed at Paku Lodge in Tairua (about half an hour south) and they have FREE kayak hire for guests. Awesome place.
