Cape Reinga & 90 Mile Beach

By admin | Published November 29th, 2010

A visit to New Zealand is not complete without a journey to the top of the North Island – Cape Reinga (Te Rerenga Wairua). Uncover the wild beauty of this vast and untouched region that is rich in Maori culture and tradition.

This journey will take you to Cape Reinga, where according to Maori legend, spirits depart on their journey to the homeland – Hawaiki. On your way, visit the ancient Puketi Kauri Forest, with a 20 minute boardwalk past 1,000 year old Kauri trees and native bush. Stop for morning tea (own expense) then later, enjoy a BBQ lunch at Houhora for $23. On arrival at Cape Reinga, stand on the northern most tip of New Zealand and watch the Pacific Ocean collide with the Tasman Sea. Ask your driver guide about planting a native tree at Cape Reinga (additional cost).

Then take the opportunity to try sandboarding down the massive sand dunes on boogie boards at Te Paki Stream – try it if you dare! A fun experience that is available to all passengers. Your journey along the vast and empty Ninety Mile Beach will provide striking contrasts to the busy and populated East Coast. Feel the sand between your toes as you help your driver guide dig for shellfish (conditions permitting) on Ninety Mile Beach.

This is an action packed day with opportunities to take photos or simply enjoy this unique part of New Zealand.

  • Sandboarding down giant sand dunes
  • Cape Reinga lighthouse
  • Puketi kauri forest
  • Historic commmentary and Maori legends
  • Ninety mile beach

Cruise through the sheltered waters of the Bay of Islands on Dolphin Seeker, our purpose built dolphin and whale watching catamaran.

Our catamaran is licensed by DOC (the Department of Conservation) for dolphin viewing.
