Activity description

Paddle up and back to the Haruru Falls in this exciting 3 hour kayaking tour starting in Paihia.

This epic 3 hour kayaking tour takes you from the mouth of Waitangi Inlet to the base of the wondrous Haruru Waterfall. A friendly local guide will lead you the entire way with tales of amazing Maori legends and captivating history. Your guide will also be sure to take pictures throughout the journey, free of charge. This journey is designed for the more adventurous paddler as you kayak from beginning to end of the excursion.

Starting from the beach base in Paihia, your guide will provide a safety briefing and explanation on how to best use the double sea kayaks. These kayaks are very stable and easy to operate. Now it’s time to hit the water and paddle! You will begin the three hour journey to the unique horseshoe shaped Haruru Waterfall that will playfully spray you.
