Overview

Journey across Lake Mapourika, Westland’s largest lake found in Tai Poutini National Park, on the Hannah-K, a purpose-built Okarito Scenic Cruise tour boat for the West Coast with covered cabin area from where to view the stunning mirrored estuaries of the Okarito Kiwi Sanctuary, the natural habitat of New Zealand’s rarest Kiwi Bird. The outdoor viewing platforms get visitors close to some of Westland’s native birds and dense primeval rainforest.

Learn about the unique environment that gives the region its World Heritage Status from an experienced guide as he provides commentary throughout the trip. The tour is patterned after those of the first pioneers who visited the glacier region in the early 1900’s. Horse-drawn carriage transported early tourists to the lake from where wooden boats would then take them across the scenic venue.

Enjoy the tranquillity of the place, listen to the native birds, and simply soak up the beautiful surroundings in their pristine state.
