Auckland is one of the world’s most unique sea kayaking locations. It is a region of exceptional natural beauty, volcanic islands, sandy beaches and is abundant with wildlife. The sheltered waters of the gulf make it a kayaker’s paradise
and are waiting to be discovered.

We offer several options for you to complete your Silver Adventurous Journey depending on what best suits your learning style and time frame. All locations are within the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park and allow you to explore the clear waters, sheltered coastlines and stunning campsites on offer.

Some locations we visit may be protected sanctuaries, free from pests and home to the endangered New Zealand dotterel, saddleback, kakariki, kiwi, shore skinks and bellbirds. We believe that the Hauraki Gulf Marine park is one of the best sea kayaking locations in the world.  

All watersports equipment provided. Also provided is all the camping gear (tent, sleeping pad) as well as cook sets (cooker, gas, plates, pots, cutlery, cleaning kits, cups) for this trip. If you require sleeping bags we can rent this at $15 per person. 

Pre-work: 1 hr online meeting

Meet day 1: 10 am Sullivans Bay, Mahurangi

Finish: Sullivans Bay, Mahurangi. We return to Auckland Sea Kayaks office  3.30 pm if you have requested transport. 

Fitting journeys into your Award

The Adventurous Journey section has three components: Training, Practice, and Qualifying.

  • Training: This is covered on the journey
  • This journey can be used for either a Bronze Practice journey OR Qualifying Journey
  • At until the 31st of December it is possible for us to waive the requirement to do a Practice Journey.

We recommend using this journey for a Qualifying and having your Practice journey waived so you only need to do one journey at Silver.

PAYMENT INFO: When enrolling in an Auckland Sea Kayaks partner Journey you will enrol directly through the Auckland Sea Kayaks booking form, no payment will be charged at the time of enrolment.

Auckland Challenge will send you an invoice for payment AFTER the journey has been completed. If you enrol and are unable to attend you MUST notify at minimum 48 hours prior to the journey start. If you fail to notify Auckland Sea Kayaks or cancel within 48 hours of the start time you are responsible for the full cost of the journey.

The Auckland Challenge Office will be closed from 12:30pm 22/12/2022 until the 9/1/2023. We will not be responding to queries during this time. If you need any COVID exceptions or assistance with your Award this must be done before the 22nd.
