 You will be guided through large mature mangroves and down a tidal channel where one of New Zealand's largest colonies of cormorants lives and nests. You may see mullet leaping clear out of the
water, flounder in the shallows and the majestic royal spoonbill hiding in the mangroves if you're really lucky! Fun for the whole whanau. Activity recommended for 7 years and up. Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult participant to ensure adequate ratio. Advanced safety procedures will be in place on the day.
