Blazing Paddles Canoe Adventures.


Everything you need to know about canoeing or kayaking the Whanganui River.

Mark and Judith Ebrey advise that they have sold the business to Owhango Adventures and the business will be based at the Owhango Adventure Lodge from October 1, 2016.

We thank all of our customers over the past 19 years and we are sure you will get the same great service from the new owners.

As well as canoe hire, Owhango Adventures provide onsite accommodation in the former Owhango Hotel but the best news is that those doing the most popular three day trip from Whakahoro to Pipiriki are closer to the river than before – and also closer on the return journey.

When booking your unforgettable Whanganui River Journey ask how many others will be being put on with you at the same time. Bigger groups off 20 or more generally get on the river much later, and there’s a lot of waiting around at Pipiriki at the end, which is not a lot of fun if its raining.

We’ve built a reputation of being there early and getting you on the way home much quicker than most operators.
