Travelers in the southern hemisphere who like to get out on the water will want to head to New Zealand, where Paddle Wanaka is primed to help everyone experience the incredible natural beauty of this tiny nation.
“Our aim, for everyone, is to get people out kayaking with friends and family and enjoy the lake,” says Charlie Ives, operations manager for Paddle Wanaka.
The team works with each individual to determine if and how they can safely participate in kayaking trips. Modifications that can be made to the kayaks include back and seat support, hand straps for paddles, and mini outrigger floats.
On guided trips, the organization can also offer spray skirts (and therefore more trunk support), and the trained guide will be there to offer support and safety.
