Downunder Kayaking and Adventures ~ USA to New Zealand

"Good clean fun with a healthy dose of laughter"

A native of Napier, New Zealand, and the 'Faloon' whanau, Kim now resides with her family in Darien, Connecticut, where she owns a kayaking business www.downunderkayaking.com. Previously a children's yoga instructor, Kim created a variety of fun and enriching programs and activities for children (and adults) designed to empower and release stress, primarily through exercise, fun and laughter. She continues to do so through her kayaking and adventure businesses.

With the help of Good Company Pacific Partners and under the guidance of Michael Fleck, Kim has created some very special experiences of New Zealand that promise to uncover the true natural beauty and share the spirit of the land and people. Down-to-earth, off-the-beaten-track, fun and inspiring experiences, traversing the far North to the far South, guided by locals and Downunder Adventure staff. Her first trip is scheduled for February 2008, and she has many more lined up.

Whilst geared towards the American market primarily through the kayaking business she leads in the US New Zealanders and Australians have been jumping on this bandwagon - making for an even more delightful and interesting experience for the Americans! As the business grows, it is anticipated that the group makeup will be very international, and always 'down-to-earth.'
