After meeting your guide just outside the port gate, depart along Pilot Bay where you can see the great views across Tauranga Harbor to the city, inner reaches of the harbor and Matakana Island. Pass Mauao, the iconic landmark of this area where you can see evidence of the early Maori settlements around the base of the mountain. Hear the Maori legend of how Mauao got his name. As we pass by Mauao we arrive at one of New Zealands most popular beaches "The Mount Main Beach" the home of Surf Life saving, major surfing competitions, beach volleyball  and a popular spot for locals and visitors to enjoy the beach front cafes and restaurants. Continue along the very affluent "Marine Parade" where some of New Zealand's most expensive homes are located along with some stunning examples of the NZ native pohutukawa tree.  When you see the view out across the Pacific Ocean, you will realize why this is such a popular summer holiday destination. We tell you a little bit about the region. it's history and its rapid growth.

Leaving Tauranga we head east towards Comvita the home of the honey bee and our world famous Manuka honey.  Hear the story behind one mans passion to blend nature, health and wellness together. Sample some of the many products available for purchase and used around the world.  Learn how they support and benefit our health. There's time to purchase a delicious Manuka Honey ice cream before we head to our next destination. 

A short drives takes us to Kiwifruit Country where you can walk right under the Kiwifruit vines.  We will explain a little bit about the industry and why we grow some of the best Kiwifruit in the world. Sample kiwifruit, juices, jams, chutneys and ice cream, or pick up a memento of your visit to the orchard.

Heading back to the city we make a stop in downtown Tauranga to see the original Port location and view the revamped harbouside.  One of the highlights of the waterfront revamp is the Hairy Maclary and Friends Waterfront Sculpture Project. This is a new installation to celebrate the works of Dame Lynley Dodd, a Tauranga resident, through her much loved Hairy Maclary series of children’s books.  There is an opportunity here for a brief walk along the stunning waterfront and some time for a bit of souvenir shopping or that last minute holiday snap at our popular Angel wings wall.

Finally it’s a brief stop for a great photo opportunity of your ship and Mount Maunganui before we head back over the Harbour Bridge. On the final part of the tour as you observe the hustle and bustle of the Port of Tauranga it is easy to see why it is the busiest Port in New Zealand.
