We have a special love for our area and the traditions we still value today in our everyday operations.

We are focused on providing a sustainable experience not only for our guests but also our local community and whanau.

All our activities are 100% authentic and true to our culture here in this region of New Zealand. 

Whether its our Kai gathering adventures out on the water or deep within the bush, we aim to provide a true East Coast experience.
