Deckers is a great place to take beginners. Not the most raft friendly, but lots of fun for people just learning how to kayak, especially if Foxton is running at all. Waterton also if you are feeling hot to trot at the end of the day. Good levels of progression in one area. And beautiful too.Another good choice is Deckers. Class 1 and 2 with 1 advanced area that you may also walk around.
