We'll be traveling to New Zealand for our Honeymoon from November 29-December 29 and though my wife Sarah is fond of adventure, she has a distaste for being upside down in a kayak in whitewater. That said, I'm looking for advice on the best kayaking New Zealand has to offer during runoff and some partners to paddle with. Sarah and I have agreed that I will paddle for about 7-8 days over the course of our trip while she finds other adventures, starting in Auckland and heading quickly south to the SI. I definitely would like to share the heli-access experience with a solid and enthusiastic group sometime in December and hopefully several times. We're also interested in a trip where Sarah could raft and I paddle with a new group of friends. What would you tell a fellow lover of waterfalls, stout rapids and the wonderful low lying places that water calls home!? My copy of NZ WW by Graham Charles is supposedly on the way.
