Our sea kayak hire option 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).
BAY OF ISLANDS KAYAKING’S BASE IS LOCATED OUTSIDE OF TOWN. WE PICK UP OR MEET GUESTS FOR TOURS AND DROP OFF KAYAKS WHERE NEEDED FOR RENTALS. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FEEL FREE TO CALL OR EMAIL US.
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. All sea kayak rentals require a minimum of 2 people for safety reasons and all people must be confident in the water. WE DO NOT HIRE KAYAKS OUT FOR THE DAY TO GET TO THE OUTER ISLANDS DUE TO DISTANCE. If you only have a day and want to see the outer islands we really suggest our ISLAND TIME TOUR.
This is your holiday time and we want to make it as easy as possible for you! Just give us a call – we can usually help you out with anything you might need, whether it be;
Rent a kayak out for just a day or multiple days if you want to explore and camp on the islands. We offer a drop-off service to locations in the area – call or email for information. See you there!
