Island Time Kayak Tour

This is our most popular tour and the best Sea Kayaking trip you can do in the Bay of Islands and New Zealand. Get away from the crowded boats and come and enjoy an adventure. We pride ourselves on our small group sizes (8 or less) and our flexible planning. With small group sizes it gives us the chance to keep everyone on the tour happy and we are able to cater for the whole group.
WE ARE THE ONLY KAYAK COMPANY THAT TAKES DAY TOURS OUT TO THE OUTER ISLANDS….WHERE YOU WANT TO BE!!!

Our tour starts when we pick you up from your accommodation and head for the car ferry to Okaito (NZ’s first Capital).

From here we have a scenic drive along the Russell peninsula to where we start. After we get comfortable with the gear and cover a few safety points we can get our kayaks on the water.

The Islands of the Bay are surrounded by white sand beaches and rocky coastline. There are caves to paddle your sea kayak into and explore and the water is crystal clear. There are over 100 islands in total and each one is different. We can stop and snorkel at one island, chill out and have some lunch on another and take a walk and get some photos on the next. This is a full day out on the water so there is lots of chances to come across dolphins or other amazing marine mammals. Your local guide will take you to the best spots and will spin you a few yarns about local legends and the rich Māori and European History.
