Canoe & Kayak Ltd has been introducing people to the exciting sport of kayaking since 1994. We had a strong desire to see as many people enjoying the sport as possible and soon created the Yakity Yak Kayak Club to ensure that new paddlers not only continued in the sport but also created a great camaraderie and close friendships. This philosophy is still the backbone of the company today; to provide a friendly and enthusiastic environment for people to learn kayaking, continually improve skills and knowledge and above all have great fun. Canoe & Kayak has now grown to be New Zealand’s largest kayaking company. With eight specialist owner-operated kayak stores in Auckland, North Shore, Manukau, Taupo, Taranaki, Hamilton, Bay of Plenty, and Wellington. All our staff are passionate about kayaking and are highly trained in product knowledge and kayak instruction. Canoe & Kayak are proud to run comprehensive kayak instruction courses covering a wide range of disciplines from white water to multi sport and sea kayaking. We make sure our customers not only have the best kayaking gear but are safe and competent paddlers as well. Canoe & Kayak started publication of Kayak New Zealand magazine in 1997. This popular magazine is specifically tailored for kayaking. Check out the 'Kayak Magazine' link on the left for details on how to susbscribe and details of previous issues. We hope this web site assists you in enjoying the wonderful sport of kayaking! Peter Townend Director
