Adventure Day Trip to West Coast Beaches from Auckland

Black Sand Tours Limited

Select Option


This six-hour (10:00am - 4:00pm) small group adventure tour is customized daily to suit the capabilities of the group, and the conditions of the day. Each day we choose two locations from the list that best fit the capabilities of the group, and the weather conditions on the day. It can include areas of the Waitakere ranges, Piha Beach, Kitekite Falls, Bethells, Lake Wainamou, Whatipu, Anawhata or Karekare. It is an adventure and includes swimming if you wish, river crossings, hiking and lots of rock scrambling, and sand dune running. A moderate level of fitness and an appetite for adventure is a must. Our guides are local hikers and surfers who grew up on the West Coast, and know it better than anyone...

What You'll Get

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Piha Beach, Piha, Auckland New Zealand

Blacksand guides grew up surfing at Piha and know every inch of the coastline better than anyone. They know the hidden locations, how to get to the hidden locations, when it is safe to go to the hidden locations (it isn't always) and how to have the most fun when you are there. If you want to really want the full Piha experience, travel with us...

Duration: 2 hours

Blacksand Adventures will take you hiking for 30 minutes through a beautiful rain-forest, and then swimming underneath a 140 foot waterfall...

Blacksand Adventures will take you on a full exploration of some of the regions of Whatipu Beach. On hot days we swim the safer bays. On cooler days, we explore the cave systems. Sometimes we hike the trails and climb the dunes.
