Here in Nelson, we are lucky to have easy access to some amazing little kayak adventures right on our doorstep from Tahunanui beach.
With double and single sit on tops to hire by the hour, you can cruise the Nelson Haven at your leisure. Suitable for kids from approx 8yrs old, right up to full-grown adult kids, our kayaks are stable and fun. Following a briefing on the conditions and any tips you need for your kayaking, you are free to enjoy the bay lapping up the sun or you can paddle out to Fifeshire Rock or Haulashore Island and enjoy the best that Tahunanui has to offer, from the water.
