PRE BOOKING and vaccine pass ESSENTIAL


We will be entering the Traffic Light System as part of the new Covid19 Protection Framework which comes into effect on December 3rd 2021. Waimarino Group will be opting in to the Vaccination Certificate System which means that everyone visiting our facilities (aged 12 and over) will need to provide a valid Covid19 Vaccine Pass.

This includes all visitors to: Waimarino Adventure Park and Waimarino Kayak Tours

If vaccines were not required, this would severely restrict our operations and would prevent our community from being able to access our facilities. By ensuring that all visitors (aged 12+) are fully vaccinated or have an exemption, we are protecting our employees, community and our businesses which have already been heavily impacted by the Covid19 restrictions. This means that for ALL new bookings made as of today 23/11/21 at 1600, we will NOT be issuing any refunds to people that choose to continue to book and cannot provide an approved Covid19 Vaccine Pass on arrival.  Please consider this carefully before making a booking with us/ purchasing tickets. If you already have a booking with us, we will be in touch with you. We will update our Facebook pages and websites with more detailed information by end of day Thursday which include how this will operate for each individual business.

Please contact Waimarino if you have any questions.

Waimarino Adventure Park | Italian Pedallos


Waimarino was started in 1975 with the vision to create a place where people of all ages and backgrounds can come and learn to kayak. It is still today's vision but the business has now expanded to become The Waimarino Group.

The Waimarino Group offers a number of unique & enjoyable glow worm kayak tours, a range of corporate team-building options, and after school and holiday care for children.


Perfect Day out

''We purchased the family pass online and the whole family arrive, plus some. We had just a great time, the kids loved the water slide and that huge inflatable pillow  that you jump onto and bounce the previous person off. Great supervision by the staff. Highly recommend.''


Excellent Family Venue

''Fabulous layout, fabulous activities, well run and just lovely. Our group aged from 1 year to 73 yrs. We all had a great time.''


Brilliant day out

"Great facilities and a wonderful way to spend a day! Don’t underestimate how long you will stay, take your picnic lunch and enjoy the day. Attentive staff overseeing activities. Challenged the kids to try new things, and overcome a few fears. Well worth it!"
