Haruru means “big noise” and we will get you right underneath these magic horseshoe-shaped falls to feel their full power.Our tour starts on the beach just north of the roundabout on Marsden Road. We meet everyone at the beach where we will have the kayaks waiting for you! It is just past the roundabout if you are driving from Paihia to Waitangi. Google Maps....... 14 Te Karuwha Parade, Paihia and we are just over the road on the Beach. Just look for our van and the yellow kayaks!
This is our most popular tour and the best Sea Kayaking trip you can do in the Bay of Islands and New Zealand. Get away from the crowded boats and come and enjoy an adventure. We pride ourselves on our small group sizes (8 or less) and our flexible planning. With small group sizes it gives us the chance to keep everyone on the tour happy and we are able to cater for the whole group. WE ARE THE ONLY KAYAK COMPANY THAT TAKES DAY TOURS OUT TO THE OUTER ISLANDS....WHERE YOU WANT TO BE!!!
Instead of a fixed Itinerary we will take you to the best places on the day and do what you want to do, whether it be checking out the under water snorkeling trail or finding the dolphins. This trip covers all the main Islands of the Bay and some of the smaller ones too. We spend our time island hoping so lots of time for walks, sunbathing, snorkelling and finding marine life!We have lots of time to search for Kaimoana (seafood) which is abundant in the Bay. And if you want to keep your fish or shellfish we can take it back to camp and cook it with dinner.OUR NEXT TWO DAY TOURS BOOKED AND CONFIRMED ARE FOR THE 17-18TH AND 30-31ST OF JANUARY.

With over 60 cruise ships coming into the beautiful Bay of Islands each summer it has become one of the most popular stops on everyones cruise. We have taken many customers from the cruise boats either up to the majestic Haruru Falls or out to the stunning Bay of Islands. It all depends on your time frame of when your boat gets in and when it leaves. If you are sick of being on a tour with big groups which are very impersonal or sick of paying double or triple the price of the actual tour through the cruise boat GET IN TOUCH AND EMAIL US TODAY!If you get down to the boat early to get a tender people usually get off in the first few groups but this is up to you. Remember there is sometimes 3000 people that want to get off too so getting in early and to the front of the line will avoid a long wait. Our tours start at a variation of times so there is always something that will work. Also if you have a large group of family or friends (8 or more) we can custom build a tour to suit and also times that would work for you.
