Where do we start/finish? Where can we go?
There are lots of routes available for this trip, which is why the Mission is so exciting! Routes differ depending on the weather and your preferences. Options include exploring the tranquil bays of west coast up to Glendhu Bay, or checking out Stevenson’s Arm peninsula and quiet Dublin Bay on the east coast, but we’ll brief you before you head out with weather updates. You will either start or finish at the lakefront and you’ll have a 4 hours on the water.
What happens if weather changes?
We’ll always give you a thorough briefing of what to do if the weather changes and what your options will be. You’ll have our phone number and can contact us at any time during your trip if you have any questions or concerns.
What should I bring?
All you’ll need is active clothing, a mobile phone sunscreen and other sun protection, a water bottle, and maybe your camera. You might also want to bring a snack as there are some awesome places for picnics. We provide all safety equipment and a dry bag for your phone.
Why is this different from a rental?
This trip is an awesome way to explore deeper into the lake and includes one way transport. We will transport you out to a location where you’ll paddle back to the lakefront or you’ll start at the lakefront and head out into the lake where we’ll pick you up from several locations.
How much experience do I need for this?
You’ll be paddling on your own (or in your group) so it’s a good idea to be fairly confident on the water, but you don’t need to have had much previous kayaking experience. You can paddle a wee way and picnic for 3 hours, or you can live out your Captain Cook fantasies and explore the vast coastline of Lake Wanaka. How far you go is up to you! All you’ll need to keep us updated while you are on the water.
How many people to book?
