Beach Rentals – Kayak & SUP hire!

What to do in Wanaka for an hour or two? Hire a kayak or a Stand up Paddle board (SUP)!

Come on down to our beach rental station and hire a kayak or a Stand Up Paddle board (SUP)!
The lake is super inviting, especially on a hot day. Getting out on the water is a great thing to do in Wanaka even if you’ve only got a short time, you can still have a go! You can visit one of the popular destinations, for instance the famous #thatwanakatree, Ruby Island, Eely Point, or Waterfall Creek.

You can choose your own adventure. One of our friendly beach front attendants will make sure you’ve got the equipment, knowledge and skills you need to have an epic mission!
