Owner description: Nature Cruise With Kayaking to Waterfalls designed for all age's & great value, Perfect for first timers & experienced kayakers. A Safe whitewater experience with lots of wildlife, Boat Cruise, Local history & Great photo opportunities. We cruise on our vessel along our calm coastline up a meandering river where guests then transfer to kayaks to explore up close, paddle through mangrove forests or photograph a colony of sea birds that nest in trees hanging over the river, then onto our final destination where a waterfall drops into the sea. At the waterfall the fun & adrenaline starts, here even first timers can safely experience paddling in foaming white water or even kayak under the waterfall itself. We are an All Age Adventure with mother boat on hand: Our warm vessel is on hand to give you or family a rest if you need. We work hard & realise the importance of customer satisfaction, good value & having fun. 'Day Cruise & Kayak' Cruise operates at 11am. 'Twilight Safari" Cruise operates at 4pm. 'Night Safari' Cruise operates at 7pm. Our 7 Points of Difference: * Extreme Value * Safer, Boat on hand * More time for kayaking * Rest when you or your family want * Fast Sit on Kayaks that don't Trap you * Sit on kayaks allow you to go under the Waterfalls * Night Kayaking & Waterfalls is a brilliant NZ Experience!

“Gotta do this when in Paihia!”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

Twilight/night-time cruises us to Haruru Falls with Taylor was brilliant! Great set-up with kayaking equipment including wetsuits. Felt really safe. Going through the mangroves and up to the falls was terrific. Going under the falls was so much fun and the water was surprisingly warm. Couldn't do anything quite like that in Australia. Would recommend to anyone!

“Amazing time!”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

Money really well spent. Had a great time on this kayak trip, was made to feel really welcome. Taylor (guy who runs it) was a great host and enthusatic about the trip. Kayaking up the river was fun and going through all the mangroves but was awesome going through the falls. Would definitly do it again!.. highly recommend!!!!!!!!!!!

“Great tour”
Reviewed 19 February 2014 via mobile

We had a great time kayaking up the river to the water fall. The husband & wife guide team where great & took a lot of care & time to make us all feel welcome & comfortable. We went on the night tour which was quite an experience in it self. Give it a go & make sure u paddle under the falls.

“An amazing night!”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

A totally excellent experience and lots of fun! Have never kayaked at night before and what a beautiful way to see the stars. Had a lot of fun, especially under the waterfall which was way warmer that expected. All in all a highly recommended experience, Thankyou Taylor and Ruby.
