The Bay of Plenty is home of some of the most beautiful kayaking coastline in New Zealand, as well as the magical Lake McLaren.

Kayak into Glow Worm Cave on a sunset paddle or explore the hidden waterways of Lake McLaren. Take a sea-life safari around the rocky shores of Bay of Plenty's Mount Maunganui, or choose to experience the thrill of Kayak Fishing.  Further south, take a kayaking tour around the bird nesting sites of Whakatane's Ohiwa Harbour, near the picturesque shores of Ohope Beach.
