Pauanui Departure (North)

Departing pristine Pauanui Beach with its airfield stretching from the estuary to the beach we cross to Slipper Island(Whakahau-“windy place”). After an orbit of the island( named by Captain Cook on his second voyage to New Zealand), we head via Shoe Island to Tairua Beach and then coastal northbound for Sailors Grave(Te Karo Bay) the site thought to be the oldest Sailors grave in NZ(1842).

We then take in Hahei and the natural springs of Hot Water Beach before crossing Cathedral Cove with its Kayaks and Snorkelers to Cooks Beach.

Pauanui Departure (South)

We leave pristine Pauanui Beach for Slipper Island(Whakahau-‘windy place”). From there it’s South down the coast past Mt Pauanui to Opoutere Beach. At the southern end of Opoutere Beach lies the winding entrance to the Wharekawa harbor which is protected by a spectacular sandspit.
