"Manaaki moana, manaaki tangata, haere whakamua"
Waka - a truly unique experience
By paddling in our waka hourua (double-hulled vessel) you share in our treasured ocean heritage. Waka is an inclusive experience where everyone can feel the joy of working as part of a team.
We begin and end all our trips with a karakia (blessing) for protection. You will learn tikanga (etiquette) associated with waka before becoming familiar with the boat and embarking on our haerenga (journey).
