WHAT TO EXPECT
ABOUT FERGS KAYAKS
Fergs Kayaks all started from the success of kiwi born, kayaking legend, Ian Ferguson and his gold medal win at 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. Ian wanted to encourage the sport of kayaking and create a safe, fun experience for the first time kayaker. In 1990 Fergs Kayaks was born and pioneered the night kayaking trip to Rangitoto which continues to this day. They now have two waterfront locations, in Auckland and Wellington.
