Optional Private Excursions available for purchase
Avoid the crowds and hustle and bustle associated with a group activity. For a memorable trip ashore, we invite you to consider a private shore excursion. Enjoy the undivided attention of your own driver/guide and the flexibility of experiencing the aspects of the local culture that most interest you. Below are just some samples of the private shore excursions we can arrange for you. Give us a call or email us. Let us personalize your experience!
You will be met dockside at the Port of Napier by your private guide and driver for a full day tour of Hawke's Bay, including highlights such as food and wine, sightseeing, history, Maori culture and artists and also spend time with some of the personalities of the Bay.
Taste wonderful wines, meet fascinating artists, explore stunning scenery, absorb history, enjoy a drive to the summit of Te Mata Peak for stunning views of the region (weather permitting) and enjoy a platter lunch at a winery restaurant.
Visit and talk with a Maori who can provide a spiritual insight into their culture and can clearly demonstrate what it is that makes this indigenous people so special. He will give you a cultural welcome on to their land.
You will be returned to embark your cruise vessel following your touring (approximately 7 hours duration).
