Freedom Kayak Hire NZ

Our sea kayak hire in Paihia, Bay of Islands, New Zealand is for people wanting a real adventure! Freedom Rentals are perfect for people that have outdoors or sea kayaking experience that are keen to explore on their own time. The Bay of Islands is the perfect place to rent a sea kayak with its sheltered waters, rich marine life and 144 islands.

With camping available on Urupukapuka Island it is the perfect base to set up camp for multi-day kayaking trips and its easy to access everywhere from here. We provide pick-up and drop-off service into Paihia and can also drop off to Long Beach in Russell to get closer to the islands (for a fee).
Before you set out we will give you a safety briefing about the gear and area. We will also explain about the wildlife and weather that you might encounter for the duration of your trip. If you want a kayak for a few hours come and see us at our OTEHEI BAY KAYAK RENTAL base or if you only have a day and want to see a few of the outer islands we really suggest our ISLAND TIME TOUR
