Hahei Explorer

Overseas visitors and kiwis alike are discovering the adventure of our unique boat tour operating within the Cathedral Cove marine reserve on the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula, at Hahei, only 10 minutes drive from Hot Water Beach.

The Hahei Explorer is the original Cathedral Cove boat tour to Hahei's marine reserve, stunning volcanic coastline and magnificent sea caves.

We are 2.5 hours beautiful scenic drive through Middle Earth from Auckland, Tauranga, Hamilton and Hobbiton Movie Set Tours.

Hot Water Beach


Within two hours either side of low tide visitors flock to the usually deserted Hot Water Beach to find hot water bubbling through the golden sand. Families, kids and couples can be seen digging their own spa pool in the sand and relaxing in the natural springs. Often rated as one of the world's most renowned beaches - this is one experience that should be on your bucket list. A truly unique Kiwi experience that every New Zealander should experience at least once in their lifetime!

The beach also boasts some great surf, cruisy cafés and art galleries and is only a 5 minute drive to another Coromandel ‘must do’ – Cathedral Cove.
