I visited with my partner and only gave Kathy (owner) very short notice. Luckily it was mid week and not school holidays so she was able to fit us in. Very welcoming and accommodating. Sunscreen available to apply and great explanation of the route with a map and pics to help. We hired 2 single canoes ($50 each) and had... More

A fun activity for a day out with friends. A pub lunch at Puhoi pub a great way to top of the day. We went with two couples . The passel is not difficult so suitable for all levels.

We had a brilliant 2-3 hours on the water paddling from Puhoi to Wenderholm this morning. We hired a double kayak which was $100 and we thought it was well worth it. We enjoyed exploring all the different areas and chatting to other kayak users on the water. We stopped half way and jumped out onto the jetty and had... More

This business is so professional and smoothly run. Easily catered for our group of 17. And even gave away free feijoas from their trees. A bonus!

A lovely paddle along the river through farmland and across the lagoon to the boat ramp where you can get picked up. It doesn't look very far but it was a decent length trip after all. Very enjoyable!

This is the 5th time I have been to Puhoi River Kayaks, and I will go yet again, it is such a lovely 2-3 hour activity, and considering the high cost of so many activities in NZ, it is fair value. Our family of parents and 18 & 20 year old love it, we first went years ago. I've also... More

Only 35-40 min drive from Auckland. Very easy to find the place. Definitely recommend booking in advance as it gets very busy. We had great fun with our two young children (5 and 8 years old). We booked 4 person canoe and we truly enjoyed two hour paddle. This river doesn't have strong current so it is fun for all... More

What a great experience! We had never kayaked before, so we were pleased to be welcomed by the friendly, family team who made us feel completely at ease. Their lovely premises were on the banks of the Puhoi River which meandered past the bottom of the garden. We were given safety instructions, the kayak was adjusted to suit us and... More
