Education Groups

We know that planning a trip for a school group is a challenge at the best of times - let us help!

Our knowledgeable i-SITE team can recommend age appropriate tours, activities and accommodation to make sure your group gets the best out of your visit to Napier.

Let us take care of the bookings - and the headaches!

We're experienced in looking after groups and we will tailor make a full itinerary in line with the subject you are studying.

We can access competitive rates for all of the attractions in Hawkes Bay.

Below are a few of the many ideas for you to incorporate into your educational itinerary:

  • Tractor and Trailer Tour to Cape Kidnappers (seasonal) - see the World's Largest Breeding Colony of Gannets in the world and view the limestone cliffs with the very defined fault lines in them
  • Overnight experience at the National Aquarium, meet diver Dan and discover marine life around New Zealand, but remember 'never smile at a crocodile'
  • Team Challenge at Par2 minigolf - a mystery hole in one
  • Arataki Honey - Identify the Queen Bee in a wall of bees, watch a educational video and taste all the different types of honey
  • Tell your students to get lost! - in the Amazing Maze 'n' Maize (seasonal)
  • Watch the students mouth water with anticipation at the Silky Oak Chocolate Factory and Museum
  • The Hawke's Bay Express offers tours focusing on information pertinent to the individual group, eg Napier Port; 1931 earthquake; Art Deco; industries; nature and geography.  Toot toot!

Whatever the learning outcome you wish to achieve - or if it's just merely for fun - Hawkes Bay has it all.
