Paddle Wanaka Kayaks :: The Mission Half Day Adventure
This is the kayak trip that is tailored for families who want to play together, have a safe and well-structured adventure and give their kids the gift of the joy and peace of exploring by kayak on one of the world's most beautiful lakes - this will simply be an unforgettable family adventure!
The Mission is a one-way kayak trip where you navigate around Lake Wanaka's coastline from the Clutha River outlet to the main town beach. We suggest 3 hours to easily complete this trip, allowing you time to stop for a snack or swim at one of the many tempting, shallow swimming spots and beaches along the way.
Although this is an unguided trip you will be driven to your set-off spot and provided with instruction and all your gear along with maps and a 'check-in' phone. We will always know where you are and since you remain close to the shore line, this idyllic trip is a perfect introduction to the joy of kayaking for beginners and families with little ones.
The distance you will cover is 8-10km and you should complete this in 2 hours. We give you 3 hours to allow you time to stop for a snack or swim at one of the many tempting, shallow swimming spots and beaches along the way.
