Our tours...

Step out of your comfort zone and take a 4WD adventure along Kaipara’s Ripiro Beach – the shipwreck highway. Leaving from the popular Baylys Beach, drive along the sand and experience many of the area’s hidden treasures, as you travel to the historic lighthouse at Pouto. Built in 1884, this lighthouse is New Zealand’s oldest, wooden three-story lighthouse and boasts beautiful coastal views of the Kaipara Harbour, also known as The Graveyard. Over 150 ships have seen their last days in this area and old shipwrecks are often exposed by the shifting sands.


Our tour often comes across unearthed shipwrecks, seals and other wildlife. You will see buried Kauri forests and local shellfish beds.


This is a wonderful opportunity to get off the beaten track where few are lucky enough to venture. Explore the fascinating dunescape with its native bush backdrop as you travel up to the lighthouse with its world class views from the dunes, across the harbour and out to sea.
