Kayaking Tour

The Westhaven estuary is a dual protected area with a marine reserve in the southern third and a wildlife reserve over the remaining two-thirds of the estuary. A wonderful opportunity for you to discover New Zealand's natural Wilderness while Kayaking through the calm waters of the Westhaven Inlet.


Paddle among the peaceful surroundings of the Whanganui Inlet, a protected marine Reserve. This beautiful New Zealand landscape is a rare combination of lush native coastal forest and tidal channels. Birdwatchers will see many waders and sea birds on the Inlet.


Your Kayaking Guide will take you to explore the more secretive tidal arms and channels which flank the inlet. This kayaking tour is for the young and older and can rage from 2 hours to 6 hours.
