Explore Nelson from the Maitai River

Follow the river from the port end of town right up through the heart of the city, stopping for a coffee at the River Kitchen Cafe along the way, then return to the starting point. Paddling under bridges and turning the heads of locals and visitors strolling along the scenic Maitai River walkway, this trip is perfect for those who really want a serene little trip on a sheltered, easy-to-access waterway, minutes from the CBD.

The Maitai River Paddle is an escorted trip, meaning that a Team Moana member is within proximity to you on the water. This is not a guided trip, and you are given all the freedom you want to explore at your own pace.

This is a great trip for kids and small groups, as it is very sheltered and not normally affected by the sea breeze we commonly get at the beach. It’s a great location for our Big Tahuna giant stand-up paddle board.
