Step aboard and join us for a cruise on Kakariki!
Our comfortable boat will take you out to view the 14-metre high Maori Rock Carvings which are only accessible by water.
Kakariki will take you right up close for the perfect photo of Ngatororangi carved into the rock face.
As we cruise out to the carvings on crystal clear water you will be able to view the spectacular scenery from four comfortable seating areas. Either inside the cabin, outside in the cockpit, or climb upstairs to our flybridge. You can even have a Titanic moment out on our bowrider.
Our experienced skippers will talk to you about the historical, spiritual and cultural significance of the area.
