Taster Package

Get a group of four friends together, board your water taxi at Havelock Marina and travel to the remote Nydia Bay, en-route call into Paradise Bay to learn about the history of the area then stop off at a mussel farm and your skipper will provide a cooked mussel tasting (weather permitting).

Arrive at On the Track Lodge Nydia Bay with a welcome of coffee and cake before exploring the area or relaxing at the comfortable seaside lodge (complete with hot tub).

Dine and stay overnight at the lodge, have a leisurely breakfast, collect your tasty packed lunch and take the four-hour walk to Duncan Bay through native forests. Relax and enjoy the scenic road trip back to Havelock with our prearranged shuttle.
