Personalized service and knowledgeable guide made the kayak trip enjoyable and memorable. Saw lots of bird life and struck one of Auckland’s few sunny days which was a bonus. Recommend

Hey Chris,

Just wanted to thank you for the awesome time we all had the other day kayaking Slippery Creek, and it wasn’t even slippery!!!
Trevor was worried the kids (11 and 13) might not be able to handle the kayaks, but with your tuition in the bay and guidance under the bridge, it made for an relaxed trip from there on in, and they graded the day 10 out of 10 (me too). Amazing to be paddling through a busy part of Auckland but with no-one even knowing you are there. Truly beautiful.

Dear Chris,On a beautiful morning in December – the water like a millpond – a group of us from Never Too Old – 13 in all set out from Slippery Creek in kayaks – some single some double.  We all returned safely and agreed it was an enjoyable experience not to be missed. Scenery we do not normally see and the solitude and quietness on the water – the birdlife – we recommend this unique adventure to anyone.Regards from Ole and Ellen Falkenhaug.

Hi Chris

Thanks again for a great experience, we all really enjoyed it and definitely have the ‘kayaking bug’ now!

Dad is keen to have a go too, so hopefully we’ll be back soon!

Hi Chris,

We both enjoyed the experience and the professional service that you provided. Will do it again soon going from Slippery Creek to the bridge.
