Board your Mokoia Island Wai Ora Experiences vessel to commence a morning or afternoon Mokoia Island Experience Tour. Cruise in comfort across Lake Rotorua then partake in a guided tour as you learn of the area’s history and culture while the 'magic' that is Mokoia Island embraces you. See and learn about the flora and fauna of New Zealand's largest inland island Wildlife Sanctuary, home to the Kiwi, Saddleback and Weka. Be amazed at the knowledge of the Maori about their environment - indigenous food sources, healing herbs and utility resources, then soak and soothe your feet in Hinemoa's hot pool while hearing the legend of Hinemoa and Tutanekai - New Zealand's famous 'Forbidden Love Story’ and Rotorua’s very own 'Romeo and Juliet'. You will also sample unique Maori food tastings, including Kawakawa infused beer and chutneys and relishes infused with native herbs and spices, all complimented by Maori Rewana Bread.
