As a New Zealander who has been out of the country for nearly 40 years, I found the Waka experience to be both fun and enlightening. Bringing a friend with me from Canada, I was reintroduced to my country and culture in a new and exciting way. We both enjoyed not only the paddling but really appreciated the cultural information that came along with this beautiful adventure.
I cannot recocomend this activity highly enough both for visitors wanting to find out about Maori culture but also for locals who want to participate in a wonderful paddle experience in a most beautiful part of the country.
On a more personal note I would like to commend our guide Lee-Anne, her knowledge and warmth touched my heart..More
