New Zealand Kayak Clubs, Networks & Contacts
There are a number of clubs and networks in New Zealand which specialise in
sea kayaking. These are listed below. The difference between a club and network
is that clubs tend to be run as incorporated societies while networks are an
affiliation of like minded paddlers, have a less formalised system and often
communicate via e-mail. Both of these are good places to make contacts and find
out about sea kayaking, equipment, training and trips in the region.
If you are part of a club or network and want your details included in this
list, please contact us.
