We are based in the heart of the Puhoi Village at 84 Puhoi Road, opposite the Historic Puhoi Church.

It is essential to book because the river is tidal.
Our weekends get fairly hectic so it pays to book ahead for a big group. Through the week is quieter but booking is still necessary..
We do not hold you to your booking on the weather.
If it is raining in Puhoi on the day you have booked we will always ring you and let you decide if you still wish to come, however, we do reserve the right to cancel if we feel the conditions will compromise your safety.
