Fergs Kayaks

Select Option


This 3-hour kayaking adventure is perfect for less experienced paddlers. A quick paddle across Auckland’s harbour will take you to the quaint maritime village of Devonport, followed by a guided tour up to the historical military bunkers on North Head, where you can enjoy commanding views from the volcano’s summit before paddling home again.

What You'll Get

Join this exciting 3-hour kayaking trip, perfect for those who are short on time, or just starting out kayaking.

Paddle from the base shop on the water’s edge at Okahu Bay, less than 10 minutes from downtown Auckland. Our guides are experienced and know how to keep you safe while on the water and they will fully brief you before we depart.

We first paddle across Auckland harbour to the quaint seaside village of Devonport and, from there, we paddle around North Head and land on beautiful Cheltenham beach. This is a lovely place for a swim. We then take a track from the beach around North Head and up to the summit for a fantastic view of Auckland harbour and the city. North Head is an extinct volcano which has been used from early times for defensive purposes. Your guide will show you the historic features of this interesting and commanding Auckland landmark, including some of the many tunnels that were used by the military.
