Kayak Club

If you are looking for some structure and skill learning in your child’s after school programme in Tauranga, then the Waimarino Kayak Club may be just what you need.




We pick up your child from their school and return them to Waimarino in Bethlehem, Tauranga where they receive a healthy afternoon tea before beginning their kayaking lesson. We follow a “paddle passport” that progressively teaches your child the skills required to learn the sport of kayaking. We teach all of the basic strokes and techniques from a simple sweep stroke right through to rolling a kayak in the river.

Waimarino Adventure Club is a charitable trust, and is approved by both CYFS and WINZ. Oscar subsidies are available for eligible families. All you need to do is to contact WINZ to see if you qualify, then we will fill out all of the relevant forms and post them to you.
