What bliss it was to be paddling and drifting on such a glorious day. As Rat said in Kenneth Grahame's Wind in The Willows "Believe me, young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats." I have to agree with Rat, I love being on the water and will find any excuse.
As far as I am concerned today I had a pretty wonderful morning!
I hired my Kayak from Ferg's Kayaks, Okahu Bay www.fergskayaks.co.nz
Kayaks can be hired by the hour ($25) or they offer two kayak tours :
- A 3 hour tour which across the harbour to Devonport and Cheltenham Beach and includes a climb up Mt Victoria.
- A 6 hour tour, for experienced kayakers, to Rangitoto which includes a climb to the top.
