Here are some suggestions to use your Explorer Pass to experience as much of the park as you can. Please note there are many other combinations. Our hosts might suggest alternate options to suit you.
Travel to the isolated northern beaches of the Park. Cruise into Tonga Island Marine Reserve, pausing to view the antics at the Seal Colony. Disembark at historic Tonga Quarry, then walk along the golden sands of Onetahuti Beach and over a forested saddle to Awaroa for your pickup. Cruise north to Totaranui before returning to Kaiteriteri. If you prefer, disembark at Awaroa and explore the largest tidal estuary in the Park, instead of walking from Tonga Quarry.
Choose a Cruise & Walk Option in the centre of the Park, eg. Swing Bridge, Bush and Beach Walk or Seals and Beach Walk.
Cruise to Anchorage to spend a day of quality beach time, explore the Pitt Head Loop Track or walk the easy southern section of the coastal track towards Marahau. The track winds through sunny forest groves with spectacular coastal views and side tracks to picturesque beaches overlooking the islands in the Astrolabe Roadstead. Pick up at Apple Tree Bay to return to Kaiteriteri.
Coach Transfers: Your 3-Day Explorer Pass can include one day with free return coach transfer Motueka - Kaiteriteri. All other coach transfers are charged at advertised cost.
