Police are still searching for a kayaker missing off Gisborne.

Police, surf lifesavers and the police national dive squad resumed the search today for the 25-year-old Gisborne man, eastern district police said.

The kayaker was not wearing a lifejacket.

He capsized while paddling with a female companion in coastal waters just north of Gisborne yesterday afternoon.

The woman, in her 20s, was spotted by boaties, who rescued her shortly after 4pm.

Rescuers were "optimistic" they would find the man, a police spokesman said.
