North Shore Yakity Yak Kayak Club

skills course 3 2 We are a bunch of enthusiastic sea kayakers who travel all over Auckland and beyond enjoying the amazing mix of ocean, river and lake paddling that NZ has to offer. We have a huge range of trips, mostly in NZ but but including the odd international trip, on the calendar throughout the year. The Yakity Yak club offers a variety of trips throughout the year for paddlers who want a relaxing day out or a weekend away. Our team leaders organise trip planning and coordination and everyone looks out for each other on the water.
