Kiwi Coastal Tours. A trip with Craig and Kiwi Coastal Tours will not disappoint, from the start to the end you will be wanting more.

Be prepared for a relaxing no rush journey around Wellington city, around the coast and along secluded beaches, take in the awesome scenic panoramas of Raukawa (Cook strait) and on a fine day views of the south island of New Zealand.Learn about the maori way of life pre-European to the present day,hear about the legends of the land and the way Maori used what nature provide for sustenance and as medicines.Safe off road sojourns are a special delight you will get to visit areas that even the locals rarely get to view, there is so much on offer with Craig and Kiwi Coastal Tours so bring a camera and a smile and Craig will throw in a cuppa tea or coffee at our designated rest area with toilet facilities and an awesome view. Be prepared for an enjoyable three (3) hours. Did I mention the wild animals ? I have a reliable vehicle that transports 5 (five) persons comfortably or 6 (six) at a push. I am a one man operation so you get me and only me. Looking forward to having you share this experience with me. Regards Craig Stoddart

Awesome day out with Craig! We made our way across the north, south, east and west of Wellington. With stops for lunch by the water, gorgeous panoramic views and even snacks with reindeer, Craig showed us the city he loves in a fun, stress-free way. We also managed to squeeze in a visit to the Weta Workshop. He is very... More

In advance of my business trip to New Zealand, I made contact with Craig and we quickly arranged a suitable date and pickup time for a tour. Luckily for me, I was the only person on the tour in early December. I’m sure there would have been made tours that would have cancelled had they not had the minimum number.... More
