Paddlers on North Island


I am a British paddler traveling with a group of non paddling friends so am looking for anyone who is willing to let me join in their paddling adventures.

I am currently based in Taupo planning to head up the bay of plenty area and then up north of Auckland. If you are planning on paddling any rivers in these area soon please let me know, im desperate to get out before i head back to the UK.

My number is 0226941434.

Many thanks

You'll find that just showing up at rivers in NZ, you'll find people to paddle and run shuttle with. Lots of boaters for such a little place. Especially on weekends.

Hey Mark.

Do you have all your gear? AUCC (Auckland Uni Canoe Club) will be at Wairoa (Bay of Plenty) this Sunday (17th) and Mohaka over Easter. Mohaka is a good option for your friends too because they can tramp or just chill. It's a pretty awesome place.

You can check us out at or flick me an email or text 021 173 2778.
