Waka Voyage Haruru Falls

2.5hr Tour

Price from £74 per person

Join your Waka Taia Mai Tours group at the Waitangi/Copthorne Resort boat ramp, to commence a Waka Voyage to Haruru Falls. You will feel and sense the spiritually of the Maori warrior as you glide your way up the peaceful and tranquil estuaries of the Waitangi River aboard a 50 foot traditional Maori Waka (war canoe).  Learn traditional paddle techniques, Waka manoeuvres, chants and Haka whilst absorbing the breathtaking natural beauty of the Waitangi river eco-systems and the native flora and fauna.

The first leg of your voyage culminates with your arrival in the pool of the sacred and spiritual Haruru waterfalls. The magic of this place is brought to life by the skillful oratory of the story tellers who accompany you. The journey then continues past a local Ngapuhi Marae and sacred shrine of worship, nestled on the riverbank of the Waitangi. There are plenty of exclusive photo opportunities throughout the voyage. Tour concludes back at the Waitangi/Copthorne Resort boat ramp.
