Whangamata: Whenuakura Island Guided Experiece
- Small group
- Duration: 2 hours
Embark on a short kayaking tour to Whenuakura Island, an area which is beginning to assume iconic status alongside other regional attractions in the Coromandel. The stunning Whenuakura Island, is one of a group of islands off the coast of Whangamata which have wildlife sanctuary status. As Guardians of the islands, this tour encourages you to treat the islands with respect to preserve their future. Because of the island’s geography, access is limited due to swell and wind conditions, and only kayaks or paddleboards can squeeze through the narrow entrance. The island is a wildlife sanctuary and opens up into a beautiful lagoon which is rather out of this world. Join the experienced team on an adventure that takes you 600m off the coast of Whangamata Beach, to a secluded turquoise lagoon surrounded by native fauna and volcanic cliff rock.

Was a nice trip. The cave you paddled into, magical! Unfortunately, one mostly did not understand what the guide says, because of the waves etc. and because he did not speak loud enough. Price performance ratio was ok. Because you only paddled around two islands, into a cave and a short stay on the edge of an island that had nothing special to offer than looking at the country and standing around on the edge of the island. We expected more from the trip, you can do it when you are there. But would rather recommend only renting kayak equipment from the organizer and exploring the cave etc. by kayak alone.
The Whangamata coast is beautiful! The tour was a lot of fun. Our guide was very nice and adapted to our pace and our wishes. It was a great experience and I can only recommend the tour for beginners.
