The things to do in bay of plenty provide with some of the greatest whale watching in the entire world. On your luxury New Zealand holiday you can embark on one of New Zealand’s many whale watching tours, there are very good chances of seeing marine life such as giant sperm whales, albatross, fur seals and pendant upon the season you may be lucky enough to see blue whales, humpback whales and right whales. The beauty of going on a whale tour in New Zealand is if you don’t get to see any whales then you will be given of your fee back.

The things to do in bay of plenty, despite the divide of the north and south islands, getting around the country are fairly easy. You can get to the major cities by either driving or hiring a car or catching a plane, there are hop on and off buses. There are evidently differences when driving such as driving on the other side of the road, the road signs and the petrol is sold in litres and not gallons.

The Grade 5 Wairoa River is renowned for having some of the best white water action in New Zealand. Kaituna Cascades run the whole of the river including the bottom three rapids and the lower waterfall! Hold on for dear life as you tackle ‘Mothers Nightmare’ which has a technical grade 4 rock garden, closely followed by a tight 2 meter drop.

Experience the thrill of ‘The Rollercoaster’ – consisting of the aptly named ‘Devils Cauldron’ and the breathtaking ‘Bottom Drop’. Feel the rush of ‘The Waterfall’ which has an awesome 3 meter drop into a churning pool of white water through the Wairoa Rivers boulder-strewn rock canyon.

Topped off with a small lunch and refreshments at the river.
