The Bay of Islands is home to Taiamai Tours heritage journeys and the Ngapuhi, New Zealand’s largest tribal Maori group. Our interactive war canoe experience provides a rare and unique insight into our ancient customs, rituals and traditions.
We invite you to come and join us aboard our Waka. Through active participation in our culture you will gain a deeper understanding of our ancient histories and stories which we share with you whilst we paddle a 40 ft Waka Taua (War Canoe) together on the tidal estuaries of the Waitangi River.
Departing from the Waitangi boat ramp our Qualmark endorsed and exclusive war canoe voyages are a perfect combination of eco, spiritual and interactive cultural experiences. Therefore, it is from this position we confidently claim to be: Northlands premier Ngapuhi cultural experience
