Overview
More
A full day tour (with commentary), around the remote but magnificent Northern Coromandel. Tours start from our base at 105 Wharf Road, Coromandel Town or we can pick you up from your accommodation. Our new, revamped route takes you to the scenic Kennedy Bay via Tokatea Lookout. Be wowed by the isolated villages of Tuateawa and Waikawau with amazing beaches and views over the Pacific Ocean. Take a break at Tangiaro Lodge nestled at the base of a bush clad valley renown for its growing population of our kiwi bird. The spectacular Coastal Walkway starts with its entrance at Stony Bay and leads you through 10kms of native bush, coastline and farmland. Refresh at Fletcher Bay before the equally as impressive journey home along the pohutukawa lined Coast Road. With seating for nine, we also specialise in private charters whether it be for corporate or team building events as well as wedding parties, outdoor clubs and fishing groups. Hike and Bike options also now available.
