  • Had a voucher for 1 hr, 2 double kayaks. $35 per hour otherwise for 1 double- which is pretty reasonable. Staff were friendly enough, equipment was in good condition. On a gorgeous day its really good fun. Lovely spot, definitely worth a visit on one of those stunning days Wellington has
  • These guys are great! Use the weather as a popularity indicator. The sunnier the busier, though they are always obliging! Jump off the harbour ferry from downtown Wellington and get straight in to the water and paddling. Days Bay is a great sheltered bay and the kids are pretty happy with cruising around the wharf, watching the wharf jumpers, paddling underneath and out to the swimming raft. Pop over the road for a wood-fired pizza then come back to the beach to eat it and then the Boatshed again to grab an ice-cream! Be warned
  • Good for kayak rentals, but you'll be better (and cheaper) served with ice cream from across the street.
  • Good icecreams
  • I love the real fruit ice cream they sell you can get a huge one for only $4
