Enjoy our hospitality and majestic views of the Hokianga harbour from our home studio. You may see dolphins and orca.
You draw your design (with my help if needed) & you cut, shape & file it with my guidance throughout. All this is done in our home studio overlooking the Hokianga Harbour. We start at 9am. There is no time limit. Just relax & enjoy our hospitality as you're working on your very own special bone carving.
$60 per person with lunch provided. Over lunch listen to Maori myths & legends.

Kayaking: Whirinaki Tours
Kayak with our Maori guide down the Whirinaki River into the historic Hokianga Harbour and follow in the wake of Aotearoa's first settler Kupe. Then plant a tree to preserve this beautiful harbour.
The excursion includes local information & history from your Maori tour guide. There is an environmental theme to the tour aimed at preserving the integrity of this beautiful and historic harbour where Kupe first landed in Aotearoa. Upon your return to base you can choose to plant a flax or cabbage tree along a waterway, or other native tree selected from our tree nursery.
The journey itself can be tailored to suit an individual's or group's needs according to experience and fitness. There are single and double kayaks to choose from. Please book with us in advance as the tours are subject to tide times. Tel. 09 4058 415
