Ian and Pam from the Okiwi Bay Holiday Park have a surprise for us this morning, (other than with a delicious breakfast). It looks like we’re going to have a morning paddle in the bay!
Our Okiwi Bay hosts have organised some kayak rentals, so we are meeting Helen down at the beach who gives us both a fishing kayak each. We’ll be fishing for pictures and videos more than fish, so the extra space to put our equipment is pretty handy.
Renting a kayak with Helen is as easy as just asking at the Okiwi Bay Holiday Park/Shop and they organise Helen to drop some kayaks off at the beach. When we say we’ll be done in two hours, Helen asks us to just leave the kayaks on the beach and she’ll come pick them up.
Kayaking in Okiwi Bay
The bay is still as a statue. The water is clear with a hint of turquoise and there is no sign of life other than a few birds and one fishing boat unloading. It’s so quiet and relaxing out here. We can just take the time to glide along on the water and feel the sun on our face.
After following the coastline of the bay with all its coastal cliff, pebbled beaches and bush, we land back on the beach. There’s nothing left to do than leave the kayaks here for Helen to pick up later.
