Bay Of Islands Night Kayaking Safari
The ‘Night Safari’ Cruise Itinerary is similar to the ‘Twilight Safari’ but has the added punch of white water kayaking in the dark under a spot lit waterfall or glowing sunset. The scenery is captivating & waterfall exhilarating at this time. Setting sun, millions of stars, rising moon, jumping fish, screeching Owls, Kiwi & other eerie calls all add to the experience. Sometimes on dark nights our kayak wakes & paddles drip & glow a iridescent green from millions of tiny “Sea Glow Worms” a bio luminescence that is activated from our kayak movement.
We Cruise for around 40 minutes along our local island coastline & up a meandering river that in days gone by sailing ships used to load up Kauri Logs. Guests now transfer to kayaks so they can explore up close, paddle through mangrove forests or photograph a colony of sea birds that nest in trees hanging over the river, Then onto our final destination where a waterfall drops into the sea. At the waterfall the fun & adrenaline starts, even first timers can safely experience paddling in foaming white water & even under the waterfall itself!
Culture North Night
Shrouded by the beauty of the Waitangi Treaty grounds, the carved Maori house is a meeting house for people by day, and a theatre for international tourists by night.
Six nights* a week the marae is transformed into a magical setting where performers from the Culture North night show tell visitors to Northland the real story of New Zealand. A contemporary production combining drama, music and dance, the show relates the traditional story of how two cultures; Maori and European, settled in New Zealand.
