Kayaking on Lake Wakatipu

We had a lovely time kayaking on the lake; a great way to see the awesome scenery and enjoy the tranquility of the water. The staff were very helpful in getting us equipped for our paddle and ensured that we were able to handle the kayak before setting us loose. This was a great way to spend an hour and Paddle Queenstown is so easy to find, right there on the beach!

Awesome afternoon

Had a great afternoon kayaking at Moke Lake with my son (16) and daughter (13). Only a short trip from town but was virtually deserted. We had the lake to ourselves. Ben, the guide, was a great host, good conversation, local history and overall service (he took some great photos too!). The drinks and snacks at the end were an excellent addition. Highly recommended, good simple fun.

Kayak Day Trip with Paddle Queenstown

At first, was apprehensive about booking a kayak as my fitness levels are not that great. But, thanks to our guide Gave, he made the kayak trip totally worth it, with his stories on the legend of Lake Wakatipu, mini picnic with amazing choco-chip cookies and stories on how New Zealanders spend their summers jumping off cliffs and into the cool water beneath. I would definitely recommend this kayak experience.

Kayaking in Moke Lake

My mom and I booked a three hour guided kayaking tour with Paddle and loved the experience. Since it was just the two of us on the tour, we basically got a private tour with Gabby, who was so friendly and personable. Because it was windy on that day, Lake Wakatipu was not ideal, so Gabby drove us up to Moke Lake instead. Moke Lake was peaceful, sunny, and had calm waters. We enjoyed the leisurely pace and the afternoon picnic Gabby prepared for us.
