More details soon...


We are three U.S. kayakers from Washington State who will be spending about ten days, plus or minus a few days for some of us, in New Zealand for whitewater kayaking. We will arrive in Christchurch on February 13th. We are interested in hiring an expert paddler to guide us on multiple rivers during our stay. We are Class III-IV boaters, and we will have all of our own gear, except for kayaks. We will need to rent two medium creek boats, and one large creek boat. We plan to rent (or buy) a vehicle for local transportation and shuttle. We have never been to New Zealand, so we are open to where we kayak.

If anyone can refer a guide on this site, we will greatly appreciate it. If you are a guide and are interested, please send us a private message to begin communications.

Thanks very much.
