NZ Rowing Tours Ltd was established in 2019 by four Nelson rowers who share a passion for tour rowing, Kevin & Trisha Strickland with Sally & Phil Knight. We have years of experience in rowing and started working together in 2018 to run a Southern Lakes tour for our own club, Nelson Rowing Club. Kevin and Sally worked together to run the FISA World Tour in early 2019. Our tours have been described as having “something very special to offer the rowing community”.

Nau Mai – Welcome
There are more than a few good reasons why New Zealand’s South Island consistently gets a high ranking in world tourism. And now, while the rest of the world can’t come to visit us, there are some great opportunities for locals to explore further within NZ.
Come rowing with us. See things from a different perspective.
We like to let our rowers do the talking. Read what they have to say here.
