Want to get intimate with New Zealand?

Looking for a uniquely Kiwi experience?

Whether you are a local looking to discover the beauty in your 'back yard' or a visitor looking to explore some hidden corners, GUIDED TOURS are the answer!
We'll entertain you with salty yarns and provide you with an intimate environmental and historical perspective of the Eastern Bay of Plenty. Tours are often enlivened by wildlife encounters and the chance to participate in a some unusual kayak activities. If you wear sunnies, then keep 'em strapped on!

We offer four distinct tours :

OHIWA EXPLORER - our tours depart from Fisherman's Wharf, Harbour Rd, Port Ohope, just 10 minutes from Whakatane. We take a trip out to one of the Islands, exploring some hidden corners en route and picnic in a secluded spot, enjoying the great scenery and tranquility of this beautiful natural harbour. Time required - two and a half hours.

WILD BLUE YONDER (see picture above)... the Bay of Plenty coastline presents magical opportunities for ocean kayaking. There are plenty of options, but our favourite tour takes us along the coast between Ohope and Whakatane. Departing from the sands of Ohope Beach or from the Whakatane Heads, there are sensational coastal vistas and a visit to the eternally beautiful Otarawairere Bay is a must. Time required - two and a half hours
