The owners of this company ensure that you are kayaking with the tide...either from Puhoi to Wenderholm on the coast about 8 kilometres away or in reverse. It is a gentle, peaceful trip through bush and farmland. The tour operators gave an exceptionally good briefing and instructions before I set off so I felt confident going it alone. At one point you pass under the noisy main highway heading north of Auckland but that only serves to highlight the tranquillity of the rest of the trip. It takes about 2 hours and you are met at the end by the tour operator who loads the kayak on his trailer and drives you back to your car. I would love to do it again so I guess that says something about it. The owners are friendly and personable and it is a well run professional operation. Recommended

Really enjoyed our afternoon. With the wind at our back and paddling with the tide, it was a comfortable two hours of estuary and river paddling. Very well run, efficient and friendly. Highly recommended.

We were looking for something we could do as a family and discovered Puhoi River Canoes
We didn't have time for the full river adventure so the friendly manager at Puhoi suggested we try their Estuary experience at Winderholm Regional Park where they also have staff hiring Kayaks.

We took 2 double Kayaks and spent an hour navigating the Estuary which was very safe. All my family enjoyed the experience of paddling and exploring. They couldn't stop talking about it for days so this was a great holiday experience.

There were changing rooms and toilets in the Park near the Canoe hire so easy to get into togs and changed afterwards
