Our Country, Coast and City Tour takes you along the coast and through our beautiful countryside including apple orchards, vineyards and farmland.

This tour includes a stop at the Arataki Honey centre, which showcases New Zealand’s unique Manuka honey, famous for its unique medicinal healing properties. There is no denying that people and bees are at the heart of Arataki, and their purpose built factory brings both together to showcase this wonderful export industry.

We then venture 399m up Te Mata Peak for a spectacular 360 degree view of Hawke’s Bay - fantastic photo opportunity and a must do when in the Bay. We then head down to Havelock North, the boutique Village for a 30 - 45 minute stop to wander the shops OR stay on board and visit the Strawberry Patch for complimentary strawberries (seasonal) and purchase a real fruit icecream, returning to Havelock North to collect those that chose the shopping option.
