Black sand adventure

Highly recommended! An excellent day exploring the gorgeous west coast black sand beaches. Shaun was a fantastic guide & photographer. We went to Piha and Anawhata, and caught the best off-the-beaten -track sights, views and experiences. Lunch on a quiet clifftop with only the ocean and views for company was memorable.

I found Shaun's Blacksand Adventures tour per chance, because I was looking for a way of Transport to the west coast. But Shaun's program exceeded all of my expectations: not only did he drive us there, he also showed us hidden places at the beaches, climbed a path leading up to a waterfall with us and took many many Pictures, but he also told us so many interesting stories and gave us all Kinds of Background Information. Very nice guy and a great day trip!

Black sands adventure is totally worth it

Shaun is so experienced and kept the group safe. It was a small group adventure to waterfalls and then hidden caverns and seeing caves on the beautiful beach with black sands. I rate this a 5/5! Don't be afraid to return soaked, feet coated in black sand and energized.

Amazing, amazing tour

Hands down, THE BEST TOUR I ever had in New Zealand (and I've been to the whole of North Island)! Shaun is super knowledgeable, passionate, caring and I felt super taken care of the entire trip : ) Not to mention, awesome stories so you'll never feel bored. What I love most is that instead of just driving to a spot, getting out, taking a photo, you actually get to experience the place — for e.g., Shaun brought me up to the black sand dunes, made a game out of getting down, went up some cliffs to have a better view of the waves crashing into them, walked through sea foam etc. 11/10, highly recommend, SUPER worth it. Bonus: he takes beautiful pictures too, FOC! : )
