With a view close enough to enjoy all the action, without being at a distance that could cause harm, this one hour tour will delight families, children and even adults.

Along with the chance to view these tiny creatures, the tour also includes stories about the cultural significance of the Pukekura area as well as offering up plenty of beautiful sights whilst reaching Pilots Beach.
