Make your visit complete

Add another dimension to your visit to Whitianga and include one of our excursions into your itinerary. Not only will you enjoy the breathtaking views and wonderful landscape of the stunning Mercury Bay area, you will gain a special  insight into local Maori culture and history. 

Popular beach journeys

Enjoy the stories and history of Mercury Bay from the descendants of local Ngati Hei Maori. We visit popular local tourist destinations such as:

  • Cathedral Cove
  • Hot Water Beach
  • Wharekaho (Simpson's Beach)
  • Waimuiototo (New Chum’s Beach)
  • Toumuia (Lovers Rock).

Tours with a difference

Pa Site – Wharekaho and Wharetaewa pa site is as culturally important as Waitangi, being the first friendly welcome or powhiri between Cook and Maori. Visit scared sites and discover the meaning of local stories and history.
Cathedral Cove – Walk to the famous Cathedral Cove and then after you have enjoyed your time at the beach, you can be picked up by boat, sparing you a return walk up the hill.
New Chum's Beach   A trip to the pristine Waimuiototo (New Chum’s Beach) is worth the ‘off the beaten track’ walk to enjoy the bay, you may even spot an Orca or Dolphin.
