Okarito and Whataroa Nature and Eco Cruises
Okarito and Whataroa are small settlements on the West Coast. The Okarito Lagoon is New Zealand's largest unmodified wetland covering 3,240 hectares of shallow water. The area is a ‘must-explore’ if you are interested in birds and there is so much more to offer as well. The rugged Southern Alps/Kā Tiritiri o te Moana dominate the landscape inland, with the impressive expanse of the estuarine Ōkārito Lagoon along the coast.
Mobile-friendly - Glacier Country Lake Tours provides Scenic Cruises and Fishing charters on Lake Mapourika. The Hannah-K is a fully enclosed scenic tour boat designed to let you enjoy the beauty of the West Coast in comfort and style. Fish for Salmon and Trout or sit back and enjoy the panoramic mountain views, pristine rainforest and native birdlife of Okarito Kiwi Sanctuary.
Mobile-friendly - Visit New Zealand's only White Heron (Kotuku) nesting colony. The beautiful White Heron breeds only in a single secret location in what is one of the most romantic parts of the country—in the Waitangiroto nature reserve—part of the South Westland World Heritage area. Rainforest nature tours and scenic jetboating all year round.
