Have you considered kayaking as a workplace outing? No prior experience is required!

What We Offer:

Pacific Coast Kayaks can offer a fun and unique experience to boost morale and build relationships amongst your staff.

Sea kayaking is ideal as we can carry food and refreshments to a new location. We can use kayaks in combination with other activities such as fishing or snorkelling or gathering kai moana. One company even used our kayaks to search for surf!!

  • Our double kayaks are safe, stable and easy to paddle
  • We have single kayaks for those with some experience
  • All gear is provided and delivered to your selected location

Staff will enjoy exploring our wonderful coastal areas and build up an appetite for the usual BBQ or lunch afterwards.

  • To reduce costs and save time this is all available locally Around Whangarei we have the inner and outer Harbour, Pataua/Taiharuru, Ngunguru-Goat Island, Tutukaka coast or harbour for a start. If you have more time we can travel further north.
