North Head Adventure


Fergs Kayaks has introduced this new shorter sea kayak tour to Devonport/North Head (Maungauika) which has the same attention to detail from our experienced guides as our famous Rangitito tour. The shorter tour is a great option if you are short on time or are a less confident paddler.

We paddle from Fergs Kayaks well known base on the water’s edge at Okahu Bay, less than 10 mins from downtown Auckland. Our guides are experienced and know how to keep you safe while on the water and they will fully brief you before we depart.

We first paddle across Auckland harbour to the quaint seaside village of Devonport and, from there, we paddle around North Head and land on beautiful Cheltenham beach. This is a lovely place for a swim. We then take a track from the beach around North Head and up to the summit for a commanding view of Auckland harbour and the city. North Head is an extinct volcano which has been used from early times for defensive purposes. Your guide will show you the historic features of this interesting and commanding Auckland landmark, including some of the many tunnels that were used by the military.

The tour takes approximately 3 hours.

Our North Head Kayak tours meet at Fergs Kayaks' base at 8.30am and return at approximately 11.30am.

Bookings are essential for all our kayak tours.
