Sea Kayak Rentals

Beach Hire

Come on down to Kaiteriteri beach and have a chat; we’ll sort you out

Ideal for first timers who want to experience kayaking in the Abel Tasman area but don’t want to commit to an option lasting longer than a few hours. Kaiteriteri Bay is known as one of the most safe and sheltered beaches in New Zealand.

We provide ultra stable double or single kayaks so you can explore the coves, islands and lagoons all found within the shelter of the bay. New Zealand Fur Seals reside on one of the islands from April – November.

We also offer Stand Up Paddle boards for hire. All paddle boarding is restricted to Kaiteriteri bay.

We give you full instruction and provide all necessary safety equipment.
