Careys Bay Paddle


We are very fortunate here in Dunedin to have easy access to nature everywhere we turn and maybe the best being the beautiful Otago harbour which sits on our doorstep.

The ocean and water has remarkable effects on our health and wellbeing so why not come and experience it for yourself? You might even have a friend, work mate or whanau member who could benefit, so why not bring them along?

Meet us at Careys Bay opposite the Carey's Bay Historical Hotel for a short paddle. Any craft welcome, the only rule is that it is people-powered. Afterwards, join us for coffee at the Carey's Bay Hotel.
