Waka - a truly unique experience. Waka (Māori canoes) are the living expression of a people who sailed the Pacific Ocean for thousands of years. As the only form of transport across oceans and waterways, waka were vital for travel and trade. By paddling in our double-hulled (waka tuarua) or single-hulled outrigger canoes (waka ama), you share in New Zealand's treasured heritage. Waka is an inclusive experience where everyone can feel the joy of working as a team. We begin and end all our trips with a blessing (karakia) for protection. You will learn the etiquette (tikanga) associated with waka before becoming familiar with the boat and embarking on our journey (haerenga ). Join us for a truly unique cultural experience.
