Kayaking is ranked among New Zealand's most popular water sports and as a result, kayak hire is available in virtually any bay and along most shores of the country. There isn't a stretch of New Zealand's coastline that's not worth exploring and often some of the best views are only visible from the water.

Float My Boat offers kayak hire to everyone, from people who are here on holiday and interested in a little site-seeing, individuals just wanting to try it out or holiday makers looking to use a kayak for an extended length of time to corporate team building packages, fitness instructors or families wanting to spend some quality time together.


Float My Boat is a kayak rental business operating on Auckland's beautiful North Shore, owned and operated by Vicki Corless and launched in the Spring of 2009.

Float My Boat's aim is to hire kayaks to tourists and locals on the North Shore who would like to experience one of New Zealand's favourite water sports whilst taking in the views of the East Coast Bays from the water.

Kayaks can be rented on an hourly or daily basis and every rental includes a kayak, a paddle, a life jacket (pdf) and notes including tips on good paddle technique, safety at sea and what to do in an emergency.

Float My Boat's kayaks are plastic sit-on-top Frenzys and SeaCats. They are slower than fiberglass kayaks but easy to maneuver which makes them perfect for recreational and site-seeing paddles.

With a wealth of beautiful bays and inland bodies of water, Auckland's North Shore is ideal for scenic meanders, picnic-paddles, a break in the routine of a gym workout or beginners wanting to test the waters before cashing out on a sport they may not enjoy.
