Overview

The Coromandel is a real Bucket List NZ destination!

This Day Trip includes the classic must do's of Cathedral Cove/Narnia and Hot Water Beach.

We give you 2 hours at Cathedral Cove, (time to explore, relax and swim if you choose)

We alter our itinerary daily so you'll be at Hot Water Beach as close to low tide as possible.

We provide shovels and help you to find the good places to dig your own natural spa.

We also include the Mount Paku summit climb which larger tours can't access, and is a real favorite.

Our day trips are small groups. (8 Max) plus a friendly guide to show you around. We go at a slow pace, and include time for lunch, so you can really enjoy, and soak up this beautiful part of the world. After a long day of epic views, and beautiful beaches we are sure you'll have a great night's sleep. Don't miss this once in a lifetime experience!

Total fun on a tour of hot water beach, cathedral cove and ?peka? mountain. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and lots of fun. Come ready for a moderately strenuous hike if you do the cove

This was a spectacular day! If you want to get away from it all, go to the Coromandel. George, our guide, was a wealth of information and we had a good laugh while seeing gorgeous scenery. Be prepared for some good hiking.
