Experience Maori culture while paddling a traditional canoe through beautiful scenery. You’ll be greeted by your Ngapuhi tribe host, before boarding an ornate 50-foot war canoe. As you explore the breathtaking Waitangi River eco-system, you’ll be shown traditional paddling techniques and hear ancient tribal stories. Your voyage culminates at the spiritual waterfall, Haruru Falls, brought to life by the storytelling skill of the Ngapuhi. Your return voyage brings you past the Marae, a sacred shrine of worship, before you head back to your ship with magical memories of this rich culture.
