All Canoe & Kayak staff are passionate about kayaking,it's who we are, and we're keen to see you enjoy kayaking as much as we do.That's why we take the time to really advise you about the best options for you. We hold a huge range of kayaking brands and this means you have more choice.

We also believe that people need opportunities to experience kayaking or learn more about the skills you may need to be safe out on the water, especially beginners. This is why we have developed a range of kayak courses, kayak tours and even a nationwide Yakity Yak Kayak Clubto take your kayaking experiences further. Our qualified staff and instructors have taught hundreds of people kayaking of all abilities and many customers have achieved their Grade 2 Racing Certificate for competing in multisport events like the Speight's Coast to Coast.

Whether you're a beginner or advanced paddler
 Canoe & Kayak has it all: sit-on top kayaks, fishing kayaks, sea kayaks, whitewater kayaks, canoes, multisport kayaks and more. We even have second hand and used kayaks for sale too. We can also advise you on the safe transport of kayaks as we are also the Roof Rack Centre, and can supply all the roof racks and roof rack accessories you could possibly need.

Our New Zealand Kayak Magazine and annual kayak equipment catalogue will ensure you are kept up to date with the latest changes, news and trends in kayaking.
