Stand Up Paddleboarding at Bay of Islands Beach House

The Bay of Islands is one of New Zealand's (and indeed the world's!) ultimate Stand up Paddleboarding locations. We have everything you need to make your stay even more memorable. With a rack of boards ready to go on our beach, you can be out there exploring the Russell area whenever you like.  Beach picnics, overnight camping, swimming with dolphins, sightseeing, photography, great hikes, and of course, endless sublime paddling opportunities, abound in The Bay! There's a reason why it's called "The Jewel in the Crown" of New Zealand.

If you've not tried stand up paddleboarding before, we can help you get going with the world's fastest growing watersport - it's not at all difficult, but it is deeply rewarding and satisfying, and of course a great way to keep in shape. Beware - you will swiftly become addicted!

Here you may explore the mangroves, circumnavigate protected island sanctuaries - by board or by foot - or you can simply cruise the sheltered bays directly off the beach from your private retreat. Explore and discover.  Get lost and find yourself!
