Plus we will have the Phoenix range of NZ manufactured family rotomolded kayaks:

And some examples of our paddles:

There will be a range of Rob Fort kayak fishing accessories plus some spray skirts and PFDs from DayTwo.

A great rage of NZ manufactured kayaks and accessories.

    A past expedition story in New Zealand

    Was reminded today about some great expeditions completed in our kayaks.




    Kayak fishing in the Coromandel 2015

    Awesome time kayaking at Waikawau Bay on New Zealand’s stunning Coromandel Peninsular.

    The SeaBear Waitoa is not only a fast touring kayak, suitable for weekend touring and longer expeditions, but also as a stable fishing platform.

    Too many kayakers miss out on the opportunity to fish off their sea kayaks.  I have been successfully fishing off my SeaBear for some time, using both trolling lures and soft baiting.

    A friend of mine successfully fishes off his SeaBear II double kayak.  A few weeks ago taking his friend out and catching a sizeable kingfish!

    Don’t underestimate the enjoyment of kayak fishing, in between exploring the exciting coastline in your region.

    Our Paddling Perfection Packhorses have been the mainstay of many tour operators in the Abel Tasman Park since the beginning of guided tours in the Park. Most companies use the Packhorse for multi day trips and Classic tours – guided tours covering greater distances and requiring a good load carrying capacity.

    The Packhorses are extremely stable, easy to adjust and carry every size and shape of paddler. These is simply no better excursion double sea kayak around!

    When tourists recall their amazing holiday in the “Tas” they not only recall the great beauty of the region but also the thrill of paddling one of the legendary double kayaks of our industry.
