Canoe Safaris New Zealand Founded in 1979, Canoe Safaris offers fun filled river holidays for folks with little or no paddling experience. Location Our base is in central Ohakune at 6 Tay St (corner of Tay and Rata). Ohakune is a central point for getting to and from the Whanganui River - around 1-1 3/4 hours to a put in point at Whakahoro/Taumarunui and 45 minutes back from the take out at Pipiriki. Canoes All canoes and kayaks are imported from the US or Canada, and are some of the best boats available. We take great pride in having the best equipment on the river and are constantly updating our fleet. Canoes come complete with storage barrels, lifejackets, bailers, rope and paddles. Canoes have straps for securing gear and barrels. We have River guidebooks for sale, DoC Maps, and we give a training session and campsite recommendations/paddling times. Whanganui River A Canoe Trip through the spectacular Whanganui National is a great way to unwind away from the pressures of everyday life. Rangitikei River If you want a river with plenty of small rapids, steep gorges, clear water, quiet campsites and plenty of fun then this is the trip. Clients rate this river over most others.
