Avo of goodness: 3 Hour Chilled out Sail

4 reviews
Our afternoon trip departs the beach at 1:45pm and returns at 4:45pm. <br><br>Plan to sail around the beautiful coastline on Fully Charged and visit local iconic locations, setting anchor for half an hour at Cathedral Cove. Either relax on the boat, or have a swim or snorkel in the marine reserve with the amazing fish life. <br><br>Your trip includes a complementary chilled local beer or New Zealand wine along with some smoked local seafood.<br><br>Every trip is different. Help to sail or sit back on our comfy beanbags, soak up the scenery and relax.<br><br>Using wind power as opposed to engines and fuel allows us to take guests out with minimal impact on the environment.

A great local museum doing interesting things. I was impressed with the interactive exhibits. Some new exhibits under construction. Worth a visit.

Well laid out, with stories of local 'legends' who have made a difference in this rural out post throughout the history since settlement . Both Maori and European I was very interested in how the women who featured survived and thrived and helped each other out. For a small museum, it punches well above its weight. Highly recommended to get a real perspective on the region.

The museum was recommended to us by our host at the B&B and was absolutely worth the time. Such an informative museum in what appears a small space, but once inside it opens up into a variety of displays of significant history of the area. Well worth the visit.
