The Mission (remote kayak hire)

Know what you’re doing and just need the gear? Explore Lake Wānaka on this self-guided kayaking activity! We’ll drive you and the gear out to where you start and your Mission is to paddle it all back. Head off with your buddy, partner, family or group of friends and enjoy a morning of paddling on Lake Wānaka. You’ll get lots of good advice from the folks at Paddle Wānaka. We’ll help you plan your route based on the weather and your experience level. Plus we’ll provide transport to your starting location, so you only need to paddle one way! Meander along the coastline, power down the lake, explore the local islands, jump off the jetties or picnic in style. How you take on this Mission is up to you.
