REEF ECOLOGY TOUR
This tour offers a world famous interactive marine experience with Stingrays and other sea life.
Our interactive Reef Ecology tour is famous for its interaction with Wild Stingrays and is one of the most popular and unique things to do in New Zealand. Our knowledgeable guides will walk you across the reef to meet the Tamariki (Children) of Tangaroa the Maori God of the sea. Whilst meeting the residents of the reef our guides will provide insightful information about the different species you may encounter.
Once you’ve been kitted out in our designer waders, you’ll embark on a reef tour at low tide with our experienced guides. You will stand in the water whilst our resident Short Tail Stingrays and Eagle Ray Stingrays and other reef dwellers swim around at your feet. Let Pancake and Waffle, two of our Short Tail stingrays sit on your feet and wait for a gentle stroke.
During your reef tour, you’ll have the opportunity to observe and interact with the natural inhabitants of Tatapouri Bay and even feed wild stingrays!
You’ll also learn about local legends of Tairawhiti Gisborne and gain an insight into some of the methods once used by Maori to manage their natural resource.
Located right on the water’s edge, the hotel offers understated elegance and personalised service in an intimate, friendly and home-away-from-home atmosphere. Portside's urban, decidedly residential feel has created a sensation in the first city to see the sun.
