Overview

Black Sand Tours Wild West adventure trip is a different style of tourism. It will feel less like a tour, and more like you are exploring incredibly beautiful locations with old friends. We climb down cliffs, we swim (year round) in the surf, we walk through rivers, we slide down sand dunes, we swim through caves, we get buried up to our neck in Black Sand and then we run into lakes, rivers, oceans to wash it off. Sometimes we find seals. Sometimes we find whales. Sometimes we find dolphins. But this is absolutely not a get off the bus / take photos / get back on the bus kind of tour. You will go home muddy, wet, sandy, happy and tired. And you will learn a lot about New Zealand. Plus, our photos are spectacular - we take pictures of you and your friends exploring our locations all day, and they are freely available to you at no cost. We pick the best locations for the group, and the weather conditions of the day from the following list; Piha Beach Bethells Sand Dunes Muriwai Beach Whatipu Beach KiteKite Falls Pararaha Valley And we tailor a day that you will never forget.
