You will be collected from the gates of the Port of Tauranga by one of our qualified, local guides.  You will then be taken to our beach station on Pilot Bay, just a stone's throw from the gate, and experience a Whakatau (informal cultural welcome), before changing into your swimwear and starting the activity.
Experienced paddle boarders can grab some gear and head straight out onto the water, while the beginners receive a brief lesson.  All paddlers will then join together to head to the base of Mauao (the mountain) and hear the Legend of Mauao, a story of both love and loss.  On the return paddle, you will have an opportunity to try some cool tricks on the boards shown off by our skilled instructors.
At the end of the session, we will have a brief Poroporoaki (farewell) at our beach station, where you will receive a traditional gift from us. We will then accompany you back to the Port of Tauranga gates where you can continue enjoying your day in our beautiful home.
* Towels available on the day.
