I'm over in NZ on holiday from the UK, spent a few days kayaking on the Buller and tribs whilst going round the S Island, but am keen to get a couple of days paddling whilst in the N Island too.
I was thinking the Kaituna may be a good bet (if it's running?) for hooking up with fellow paddlers, but I'd be very grateful to hear if anyone's got any other suggestions (or are also looking for other paddlers?)
I'll need to hire boat and paddles, but have my own soft kit with me, and have transport.
I can be contacted on 0221290918.
