Haruru Falls Tour

Come and join us on our kayak tour up to the famous Haruru Falls. Haruru means “big noise” and we will get you right underneath these magic horseshoe-shaped falls to feel their full power.
We use top of the line sea kayaks with rudders and spray skirts to keep water out of the kayak. After a little instruction we will head off up the river exploring the mangrove forests on our way to the falls.
As we go we can spot nesting birds and old Māori Pa sites. When we get to the falls this is where we can really have some fun!
Here we can get up close to the falls, get a few photos and for the more adventurous take a plunge under the falls. The Waitangi River is rich with history and Māori legend as your guide will tell you on the way.
After a paddle under the falls we will stop for a break and refreshments before our paddle back down the river to where we started.
