Embark on a unique adventure with us, delving into a tidal marvel that takes you beyond the ordinary. As we journey onto the reef, the cityscape fades into wilderness, even with the iconic Skytower and harbor bridge in view. Our excursion begins with a leisurely walk through a grassy park, where we connect, share stories, and warm up. Upon reaching the reef, we venture 'off-track' into mangroves and lava terrain. Navigating the mangrove maze adds excitement, leading us to open oyster fields for the final leg. Out on the reef, amidst Waitemata Harbour, you'll appreciate the city's diverse wonders while feeling far away. This 11km lava flow from Te Kōpuke / Mt St. John volcano boasts 28,500 years of history, encompassing 14 hectares and culminating in a two-kilometer tidal tongue basalt reef exploration in the Waitematā Harbour.
