- Kayak through the stunning Cathedral Cove, one of the most attractive spots in all of New Zealand
- Dramatic scenery and exotic wildlife everywhere you look
In a country famed for its ecotourism activities and the lush beauty of its landscapes, one attraction stands out more than most - Cathedral Cove Marine Reserve, also known by its Maori name Te Whanganui-A-Hei. Accompanied by experienced local guides who will provide an interesting commentary on the area as you go, you’ll paddle past volcanic islands, into dark sea coves, and through Stingray Bay where you may be lucky enough to see dolphins playing in the sea, seals lazily sunning themselves on the beach, and of course stingrays.
Among our favourites in the Tinggly portfolio, this tour along the Coromandel Peninsula is rated as one of New Zealand’s greatest kayaking expeditions, and in a country with such a renowned pedigree for outdoor activity, that goes a long way. A classic ecotourism adventure that has enchanted visitors for years, you’ll remember this day as a real highlight of your trip. Finish at the Cathedral Cove cafe for a reinvigorating coffee or hot chocolate.
