A relaxing cruise by Jungle Boat amongst the primeval giants of our rain forests.

In the tradition of our early explorers, we follow by Jungle Boat the route of 'Te Ara Pounamu'-the greenstone pathway. This is part of the trail used by ancient Maori greenstone jade traders on their way to the West Coast jade fields. Your spirit will lead you to your choice of waka (boat). Choose from taking a fun journey on the unique Maori outrigger canoe of the type used to travel the great ocean currents of the Pacific or be more relaxed in the inflatable Jungle Boat (both have outboard motors but we do encourage you to have a go at paddling if you want). For those individual spirits, paddle your own dugout canoe through the rainforest waterway with your guide.

This gentle flat water float trip through some of the World's most hauntingly beautiful scenery teaches you how we preserve the delicate balance between one of nature's oldest ecosystems and today's modern use of this environment. Touch the silence while drifting by this prehistoric world of huge podocarp rainforest trees with some of the areas bird life. The dark waters give you an eerie feeling of timelessness and spirituality.

Enjoy a cup of Manuka Bush tea as you learn about the life and legends of the native Maori People and take home a piece of traditional flax weaving that we teach you to do on the way. You will leave with a sense of rejuvenation from your visit with nature today.
