Kayak Wanganui River With Gavin

Ohakune - gateway to Mount Tongariro
Ohakune – gateway to Mount Tongariro

I guess it is a sign of the type of lifestyle myself and my friends live the fact that this post is about another friend in the tourism industry. Gavin has lived in Ohakune National Park at the base of Mount Tongariro now for 20 years years and was investing in the area 5 years before that. Gavin first started off investing in and building the reputation of one of the older lodges in Ohakune up on the hill. It was King Georges Lodge I think?! Anyway he continued investing in property in the area and notably owned and ran the YMCA in the main street. After a few years and many times having to turn people away due to being full; he purchased what was then Matai Lodge which sat on the adjacent property. This was a perfect fit as it doubled the size of his offering and majorly increased the beds available. He didn’t stop there either; the keen skiers needed to get up the mountain so Gav purchased a few rental cars and also a couple of buses to take people up for their day on the beautiful Tongariro Mountain. This was an ideal lifestyle for Gavin; plenty of happy adventurous people around, lots of parties (often instigated by him) and plenty of work to keep him and his business partner Don busy and moving forward.

Wanganui River Canoe Trips
Kayak the Wanganui River with Yeti Tours

Then came the next chapter! Seeking more fun and adventure, they purchased Yeti Kayak Hire and Tours on the Wanganui (Whanganui) River. Gavin purchased Yeti tours about the same time I started my internet career so working on his site and my New Zealand Flower Delivery website called FloristNZ just made it easy. What I learned for myself I could apply to Yeti Tours! Yeti Tours offer anything from bare kayak and Canoe rental through to fully guided and catered tours down the beautiful Wanganui River past native New Zealand trees full of birdlife. There are other offering trips on the river; however if you want a true adventure with people that absolutely love what they do; then I would look no further that Yeti Tours. Update: Gavin has replaced his entire fleet of boats to the new 2017 models that are all blue now. The website has had an overhaul in September 2017 as well.

Motorbike Tours With Nigel

Tour on a Triumph with MCR
Iconic Triumph ready for a Tour

I first met Nigel when we were both involved in Hot Air Ballooning in Christchurch. Nigel is a qualified Balloon Pilot and I worked many times as his ground crew and chase vehicle driver. Like my other friends, Nigel has a real attraction for adventure and business. For a few years now, he has run a Motorbike Tour Company out of Christchurch in the South Island of New Zealand. Christchurch in recent years has become infamous for the devastating earthquakes, especially Feb 2011. I was there through it all back then as well but have since moved to the far north of New Zealand. Anyway Nigel rode it out and now has a very successful business that allows people to either hire a bike and take off on their own or join one of his fully organised tours around the picturesque South Island. The thing about the South Island is you get really open roads and amazing scenery as you ride along. But wait theres more ­čÖé Nigel does not hire just your ordinary bikes; he has iconic bikes in mint condition from days gone by. You know the bikes when you were younger you wished you could afford. He covers all the main brands from BMW to Yamaha with a bike to suit any rider. I haven’t been back down to Chch for a while, but when I do, a cruise on one of Nigel’s bikes is at the top of my list. Update: Nigel now has a 2nd site called “Cool Car Hire” where you can hire an Aston Martin! and a range of other cool cars – Wicked eh!
