Weekend trip:

Whangaroa Harbour Discovery Paddle

Discover the beauty of the Bay of Island’s. We set off from Whangaroa Harbour to a secluded inlet and stay overnight at the original Department of Conservation Hut (sleeping bag and camping attitude essential). Explore the local camping trails in the surrounding bush covered hills. Settle in on Saturday evening for a delicious cafe style meal and wine, before hitting the sack to be ready for Sunday’s activities.

On Sunday morning, we depart from the inlet and paddle out onto the east coast, navigating through sea caves and keeping eyes peeled for dolphins and penguins (normally easy to spot). We stop for lunch at one of the many small, private beach inlets before heading back into the Whangaroa Harbour to pack up boats and gear. On the way back to Auckland we stop at a local pub/cafe in Kawakawa for a well-deserved celebratory meal. Estimated time of arrival back into Auckland is 6:30pm.

All food, accommodation, transport and equipment provided. Please note: this trip requires a reasonable level of fitness. Hut accommodation is basic.
