On the Water

There are many options to get you out onto or under the water.

Whitianga and Hahei are great starting points for scenic boat trips along the coast and to the Marine Reserve, with glass-bottom and snorkelling too as part of the trips. Diving and snorkelling excursions also run from here. Sea kayaking and sailing are very popular. Paddle boarding is growing rapidly too – try the new 'SUP' trip across to Donut Island.
