KG Kayaks Location

KG Kayaks are based on the shores of the Ohiwa Harbour in the Eastern Bay of Plenty, North Island, New Zealand. This part of New Zealand is blessed with warm summers and mild winters. Ohiwa is a sheltered natural harbour adjacent to the beach settlement of Ohope Beach and midway between the towns of Whakatane and Opotiki.

Hires are avaiable either from our home in the inner harbour, near Kutarere or at Fisherman's Wharf, Port Ohope througout the year. Whichever you choose, please call to book. Guided tours depart from a number of locations throughout the Eastern Bay and these can be arranged to best suit your needs.

KG Kayaks run programmes for schools and businesses and are happy to travel to other locations. In the past year we have operated as far afield the Coromandel Peninsula and the Rotorua Lakes.


KG Kayaks also run guided kayak trips at Whale Island, which is 9km offshore from Whakatane. These three hour trips, which include a return boat trip to Whale Island, depart from the Whakatane boat ramp adjacent to the Whakatane Wharf.
