THE COROMANDEL ADVENTURE EXCURSION
Deep sea fishing and diving
Go with those in the know to experience action-packed fishing and diving like never before. The waters surrounding The Coromandel are home to some of New Zealand’s best fishing and dive spots. Epic Adventures share their passion for fishing adventures and knowledge of the best fishing locations with charters out of Tairua, Whitianga and Amodeo Bay. Reel in a kingfish, snapper or maybe even a marlin on your next Coromandel marine adventure.
Dive Zone Whitianga specialises in dives on the Marine Reserve at Cathedral Cove and day trips to the world class Aldermen Islands, one of New Zealand’s best and little-known dive spots. All levels of divers are catered for, from scenic shallow water dives to extreme dives on offshore pinnacles. Also offering PADI dive instructor courses.
For a different style of fishing, get on board with the Mussel Barge Snapper Safaris at Coromandel Town. Fish amongst the mussel farms while watching the harvesting barges in action in and around Coromandel Harbour. You’ll experience great scenery and great fishing regardless of age or experience.
Fishntits Charters specialise in fishing trips for families and groups of women. Skipper Kim Brett provides an atmosphere where women can relax and enjoy catching fish without pressure and with like-minded anglers. The boat and charter, based out of Coromandel Town, is tailored to women, but male companions are also welcome.
The Coromandel is the perfect location to tick off that Harley Davidson motorcycle tour from your bucket list. There is much to be experienced on The Coromandel by motorbike, including unsurpassable coastal vistas, the winding hills of the Kopu-Hikuai, dense native forests, and twists and turns seemingly made for motorcycling. Bularangi Tours can make that bucket list dream come true, offering a guided motorcycle tour along the spectacular Pacific Coast Highway. The loop tour covers the entire Coromandel Peninsula, stopping in at legendary Coromandel hotspots, The Lost Spring in Whitianga and the Coroglen Pub enroute.
If a self-guided tour is more your style, there are several legs to the Coromandel loop that you can pick and choose from, depending on the time and distance you want to travel. The Coromandel loop encompasses Waihi, Whangamata and Tairua, with plenty of rest stops for food and photos. Whitianga is the central destination and a good stopping point for lunch along Buffalo Beach. The loop continues from Whitianga over to Kuaotunu (Luke's Kitchen in Kuaotunu is another great lunch stop), Coromandel Town, and down the Thames Coast Road, finishing at Kopu.
Located near Thames in the Kauaeranga Valley is an adventure of a lifetime waiting for you to meet its epic challenge. Designed for those who love to test their limits and try new adventures, CanyoNZ Adventure Company provides the ultimate adrenalin rush in one of New Zealand’s most spectacular canyoning locations.
Accompanied by your Canyonz guide, you will venture into Sleeping God Canyon. Make a vertical descent of over 300 metres down a steep set of waterfalls involving abseils-rappels of up to 80 metres, exhilerating water slides, and jumps of up to 13 metres into deep dark pools.
A full day’s adventure, your Canyonz tour includes lunch, hiking and a fascinating geographical and historical education along the way. This tour is guaranteed to surpass even your highest expectations. New "Halfie" tour gets you the action and thrills in a shorter adventure.
