Kayaking: Whirinaki Tours

Kayak with our Maori guide down the Whirinaki River into the historic Hokianga Harbour and follow in the wake of Aotearoa's first settler Kupe. Then plant a tree to preserve this beautiful harbour.

The excursion includes local information & history from your Maori tour guide.  There is an environmental theme to the tour aimed at preserving the integrity of this beautiful and historic harbour where Kupe first landed in Aotearoa. Upon your return to base you can choose to plant a flax or cabbage tree along a waterway, or other native tree selected from our tree nursery.

The journey itself can be tailored to suit an individual's or group's needs according to experience and fitness. There are single and double kayaks to choose from. Please book with us in advance as the tours are subject to tide times.  Tel. 09 4058 415
