Paddle Board Hire

Hire a paddleboard and explore Whangamata's pristine waterways - ocean, harbour or estuary.

Whangamata is a popular holiday destination for kiwi's during the summer and surfers all year round.  At either end of Whangamata Beach are estuaries that are great for exploring by SUP (stand up paddleboard).

Take a Freedom Hire for 2 hours, explore the estuary or venture off the coast and explore the Wild Life Santuary Whangamata Islands and Beach, to a secluded turquoise lagoon surrounded by native fauna and volcanic cliff rock.

Free your time to stop by and enjoy the hire.
