Price Not Available

Explore a gem of the Northland region with a cruise through the spectacular landscape of Whangaroa Harbour. Your voyage takes you to see the beaches and bays, tall cliffs, outcrops, rock formations and lush green foliage that make the harbour one of the most beautiful in the world.

Get started by joining your small group aboard a water taxi at the Whangaroa Marina, then motor out for a unique perspective on the unspoilt natural beauty of the harbour. Learn about the area's historical and cultural significance as your friendly, knowledgeable skipper guides you to tranquil beaches accessible only by water, showing you sights that rarely appear in tourist guides.

The area’s history becomes apparent as you hear stories about the first European visitors in the 1800s, as well as learning about the busy days when fishing, boat building and the kauri timber trade defined the harbour's economy. The tour also has a strong emphasis on ecology, told in the context of stories about the local community, all personalised to satisfy your explorer's curiosity.

By the time the water taxi returns you to the marina, you've gained a much deeper understanding and appreciation of the area and what makes New Zealand tick.
