Waka Experience Twilight Sail With Kai In The Bay
He Maunga teitei e kore e taea te eke - A lofy Mountain, one cannot ascend
He ngaru nui mā te waka ka taea - a great ocean wave, with a canoe, one is able.
This Waka Experience offers a unique two hour cultural and twilight sailing experience on board Te Matau a Māui a traditional Polynesian designed sailing waka. Enjoy the beauty of Hawke Bay whilst listening to waiata, and the hospitality of the crew as they take you on a journey back in time.
