Itinerary Details

Your day will begin with port pickup opposite Queens Wharf in Auckland. From here, embark on a scenic 2-hour drive to the small Coromandel town of Tairua.

Upon arrival, take a 15-minute guided hike to the summit of Mt. Paku, a small volcano with amazing views of the Coromandel coastline and back onto Tairua and Pauanui. Proceed with your small group to complete a 1.5-hour walk to the magnificent Cathedral Cove, with the option of visiting the other coves along the way.
