What you'll do

We'll jump into assessing your skill level and competency. Once we judge the varying weather conditions we will then decide on the best place to paddle from a number of beautiful Auckland locations.

From the calm and beautiful waters of the Northshore and Waitemata Harbour to the West and Hibiscus Coasts where we can find a few waves to surf.

No experience is required for the Auckland Bays and with a few pointers, you will be out enjoying the amazing ocean scenery on your board.
Other things to note
Warm clothing or a wetsuit during the winter season, sunscreen in summer months. I have extensive experience and will be in the water with you to ensure your safety.

Where you'll be

Depending on the weather, tide and wind direction we could be paddle boarding on the beautiful bays around the North Shore of Auckland. Or tucked away in some of the secluded estuaries cruising past some of the beautiful marinas and moored yachts around the city.

Spectacular scenery is everywhere from the Harbour bridge, waterside real estate, the Auckland skyline and much more!

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 10 reviews.

Couldn’t be happier that we had this experience. Mike was conversational, friendly, and an excellent teacher- we got the hang of it fast and had such an amazing time! He had all the equipment needed and made it so easy. 10/10 would recommend!

I would highly recommend this tour, Mike is so friendly, knowledgeable and went at a pace that was so suited to me as a new paddler. He gave a great lesson and orientation, and it was delightful to spend some time seeing Auckland from the water while paddling, and sit on the boards and float and chat for some of the time as well.

Mike was a very friendly and thoughtful person. I really wanted to try paddle boarding, and I could fit this experience only on the first day of my Auckland stay. Mike came to pick me up from my hotel so I didnt have to figure out how to get to the location. He had life jackets to wear for those who are not a confident swimmer. Mike gave us instruction briefly before going into water. then let me figure out on shallow water where it was no deeper than waist height, once I confirmed I was ok (I am a quite good swimmer), then we headed out to deep water. we were just at the north side of downtown. the view was incredible and although I fell into the ocean a few times, water was only a bit chilly in february, Sun and good excercize on the water kept me warm! I had a great time!

早晨mike载着我迎着阳光来到了mission bay,mike口音非常标准!不用担心任何交流问题!一场与大海美丽的邂逅开始了,换装上板,一气呵成,浮板伴着🌊,有一种远离city的休闲假日的赶脚。大约一个小时之后,我们又迎着浪往回赶,微微的颠簸的感觉像是一个勇敢的维京海盗!真是太美妙了,我们交了朋友!谢谢mike,真是美好而奇妙的一天!非常棒!
