Welcome to Moana Paddle Nelson, offering the best little paddling adventures (and more) from Tahunanui Beach in Nelson. With a variety of paddling options available only minutes from the heart of Nelson City, Paddle Nelson really are the regions premier paddle sports destination.
Stand Up paddleboards (SUPs) and Sit on top Kayaks are available to hire by the hour to explore Nelson Haven at your leisure, or join us on our amazing Guided Sea Kayak tours to the Historic Nelson Lighthouse.
Available daily, these Family-friendly half-day trips take in all the sights and sounds of our special little harbour as we paddle to the iconic Nelson Boulder Bank. There’s time to climb to the top of the light and check out the view and get a selfie, a cuppa and a cookie, then it’s only a short paddle back to the beach to enjoy what the rest of our neat little region has to offer.
Paddleboard lessons are available through the only accredited Surfing New Zealand SUP School in The South Island, so to get your paddling skills up to scratch way sooner, and let one of our awesome instructors help you on the way. Paddleboard Yoga (yes it’s a thing) is awesome, and easy even for first-time yogis. Our floating studio provides a perfect opportunity to give it a go or push your practice to the next level, Namaste!
We pride ourselves on a quality experience at an affordable price, and hope you can join us for a GREAT LITTLE PADDLE ADVENTURE in PADDLE TOWN, NZ!!
