See the most beautiful sea kayaking site in Auckland, New Zealand! Book a Self Guided Kayak Hire Trip for as low as $60 USD per person/day! This is a self-guided trip but we provide the equipment to allow you to enjoy the full advantages of what the area has to offer. Our recommended trip is a kayak hire trip running between Slippery Creek in Drury to Hingaia Bridge just west of Papakura. This locality is only 25 minutes south of Auckland. Our company was established to promote the upper Manukau Harbour as an activity destination. We offer a varied and interesting journey, which winds through wetland and estuarine waters and includes some swift water. The trip is around six km and should take around 1 – 1.5 hours. We have 12 kayaks and can cater for up to 17 paddlers. This journey takes you through waters that are inaccessible by car, and you will forget that you are only a short distance from Auckland. It is essential to contact us to book your kayak hire because the river is tidal. Journey times change daily because we operate the kayak hire 3-4 hours on each side of high tide. If it is raining in Drury on the day you have booked we will always ring you and let you decide if you still wish to come, however, we do reserve the right to cancel if we feel the conditions will compromise your safety. We can discuss options for re-planning your kayak hire if a postponement is made. Ages: The trip is not suitable for children under the age of seven years old. Why kayak with us? - safe stable kayaks - access to secluded water ways - novices welcome - suitable for ages 7 to 80 - personalised service If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay. Just hit, “Request to Book” and send us an inquiry for a custom offer.
Our company set up to take advantage of the kayaking opportunities offered by the upper Manukau Harbour. We are outdoor enthusiasts and have lived on the banks of the Manukau for almost 25 years, and are convinced of the untapped potential of these waters. Why travel away when there is an adventure playground on Auckland's doorstep? The area was a focal point for English military during the settlement of Auckland and has been the home of some of the first industry in New Zealand. The area is rich in history and now supports much bird and fish life It has an ever-changing vista and is an ideal location for a kayaking hire adventure.
