Overview

Take a Rotorua & Te Puia Shore Excursion from Tauranga after disembarking from your cruise ship. Located in a geothermally active region of New Zealand called Te Whakarewarewa Valley, Te Puia is home to the famous Pohutu and Te Tohu (Prince of Wales’ Feathers) geysers as well as to the New Zealand Maori Arts and Crafts Institute, a dynamic storehouse of knowledge and training of Maori cultural arts and culture.

A tour of Te Puia, whether guided or on your own, is included in your admission. Join one of the hourly guided tours, or take a map with you and explore on your own. Marvel at hot pools, boiling mud pools, and geysers (steam and water eruptions) as well as native plants in the surrounding area.

Watch craftsmen at work carving or doing traditional flax weaving at the Maori Arts and Crafts Institute.

See New Zealand’s iconic bird at the Kiwi House, which provides a nocturnal environment that the bird prefers.

At the Marae or meeting house, consider watching a traditional cultural performance (at own expense).

Guests are welcomed at the Port of Tauranga, then taken in an air conditioned vehicle for a full-commentary tour that includes city sights like the Government Gardens, the Rotorua Lakefront, and the Blue Baths.

The tour also includes admission to and a guided tour of Te Puia.

At the end of the tour, guests are transported back to their ship, guaranteed with enough time for sailing.
