    Visit: Coastal Kayakers, Te Karuwha Parade Paihia/Waitangi Beach, Waitangi 0200 New Zealand

    The Waterfall Discovery Tour is a condensed version our wonderful Classic Waterfall Tour and caters for beginners or anyone who is a little short on time. On this fun-filled tour, you will paddle one way on the Waitangi Inlet and get transported by a vehicle the other.

    While on the water you will feel the spray from the unique horseshoe-shaped Haruru Waterfall, be fascinated by our incredible mangrove forest and be blown away by our local wildlife. Your guide will keep you entertained and amaze you with beautiful Maori Legends and local history, and all this will be captured with photos taken by your guide and offered to you free of charge.

    The kayak hut was just a short walk from where the ships tender docked. The team were very friendly and offered water and sun screen before we sat off and took photos of us during the trip at no extra charge. We had no previous kayak experience and in our 60's, but it was easy.

    We hired two open double kayaks to paddle up to the Waterfall, then if we had time to explore some of the islands. The staff were clear and friendly booking us in, the weather was fine, and we did enjoy the trip, but it would have been good to have had a bit more help adjusting
