Auckland kayak trip: Whenuapai to Riverhead pub paddle

Riverhead Pub paddle

Riverhead pub paddle is one of those magical kayak trips where you can just sit  in your kayak and let the tide take you to the pub and back!

This is second in a series of tide assisted social paddles around Auckland for the laid back evening paddler who wants an easy paddle to a waterside pub / restaurent around Auckland.

Launch point: Whenuapai

Eight of us from Auckland Yakity Yak Club launched from Waimarie Rd boat ramp, Whenuapai.

High Resolution Video of the trip to Riverhead pub paddle

The video was shot with the just launched Canon EOS 70D and the newly released GoPro Hero 3+ without any post processing on colour / exposure / balance. It just goes down to show how advanced the new senors are at working at low light even in the hand of amateur.

The trip

We started off at 6:00PM with nine paddlers: MikaelaChrisJanet, Luke, Olga, Sandra & Christine, myself and Shaun.
