Experience and share in the rich culture and history of Te Whanganui a Tara (Wellington harbour) and the waterfront through our waka (Māori canoe) and walking tours.
Te Wharewaka o Pōneke waka and walking guided tours are unique cultural experiences that all can enjoy.
Take a walk into the past to learn the history of Wellington from the first explorers to the present day from a Maori perspective, or you can enjoy the sun and the water on the beautiful Wellington harbour and waterfront while learning an ancient style of paddling and stories associated with the harbour.
See a video of the waka in action.
Tours can be tailored to suit your needs. Packages available for corporate, education and tourists alike.
