The ultimate Stand Up Paddleboard adventure awaits you!

Boat & SUP the Kiwi Sanctuary

Enjoy a scenic boat cruise across Lake Mapourika before jumping on your SUP. The sheltered shoreline of the Kiwi Sanctuary is where you’ll learn the ropes of stand up paddling with a scenic glacier and mountain backdrop.

Then you’ll follow your guide into a narrow estuary amidst lush native rainforest and into the heart of Okarito Kiwi Sanctuary.

This is a Stand Up Paddle adventure like no other, and absolute must-do for one of NZ’s fastest growing watersports!

No experience required, although all participants must be able to swim.

$95 Per Child or $145 Per Adult
