A little bit more about what we hire
Hobie 14 Catamarans
Rowboats with Outboards
Paddleboards are a more chilled and maybe more your thing. We hire paddleboards from Russell Beach or Long Beach. These are fun, safe and easy to to use water toys and ideal to use in our sheltered bays and sandy beaches. Try our free lesson and get out with confidence on a paddleboard soon!
A couple of Rowboats with small outboards compliment our water craft selection. These are ideal for a family or small group outing in and around in the bays near to Russell. Some of our other hire items include Mask + Snorkel sets, Boogie Boards, Fishing Rods with a tackle box and Dry Bags.
Other Hire Items
No better way to spend a day in the Bay of Islands than on the water!
So what about the weather?
We generally get settled warm weather during the spring and warm to very hot in the summer months. We do get rain (you only to have to look at the green hills) and sometimes a little too much wind but that makes for interesting sailing conditions. Our three sandy beaches make for great on water options and allow for a change of beach if the the wind direction’s not favourable.
Russell (Kororakeka) Beach’s summer wind direction generally starts with on-shore South-East winds and changes to off-shore North Easterly in the early afternoon. This makes for great catamaran sailing weather. This is the opposite for Long (Oneroa) Beach where we can hire a paddle board. The ideal weather for kayaking and paddle boarding is early morning when the wind is light so go explore.
If the wind kicks up then Tapeka’s Sandy Beach is sheltered from north and east.
A little more follows here about the importance of the weather and choosing the right weather conditions for your water adventure.
