Kayaking the Ngunguru River is suitable for all levels, including families and novices. Mangrove Forest, birdlife, tidal channels and Ngunguru sandspit are a few of the highlights of the area. Launch at either Ngunguru or Scows landing, depending on the tide. Allow 1/2 a day to a full day to explore the Ngunguru River by kayak.
Kayaking trips on the Ngunguru River are safe to attempt on your own with good information about tides. Generally work with the tide and wind if possible when doing a longer trip. This trip is possible even when conditions on the open coast are dangerous. This is a good option when there are strong easterlies on the coast or strong sea breezes which occur frequently in Summer, especially in the afternoon.
Freedom kayak hire or guided tours are available for Ngunguru Bay from Pacific Coast Kayaks. Bookings are essential.
