Hokianga Overnight & Jetski Safari

Stay one night harbourside in the township of Opononi with locals Lenny & Antoinette from Awesome Adventures. Enjoy a delicious home cooked meal and relax with Lenny and Antoinette (more often than not the guitar is whipped out!) or wander down to the local pub for a drink.

The next day join them for a Jetski Safari exploring the harbour, local historic sites and the famous sand dunes. You are out and about on the jetskis for about 4 hours. Gather your own seafood (or you can watch Lenny do it for you) and cook it! Complimentary kayaks, paddle boards, boogie boards and bicycles to use in your free time.
