Cape Reinga Half-Day Tour Including Scenic Flight
From US$310.63
Soar above the rugged natural beauty of Cape Reinga and Ninety Mile Beach on a small-group tour from Paihia that combines scenic flights with sightseeing on the ground. Flying to Cape Reinga is a spectacular way to see remote areas of the Bay of Islands, and the driving tour features the Cape Reinga Lighthouse, Te Paki quicksand, Tapotupotu Bay swimming, giant sand dune surfing, and morning tea with fresh pastries.
What to Expect
Get picked up at your Paihia accommodations for transfer to the airport, then soar over Ninety Mile Beach and the Bay of Islands on the beautiful flight to Cape Reinga. Once you touch down, begin a 2.5-hour minibus tour of Cape Reinga highlights, starting with the Cape Reinga Lighthouse, which marks the spot where the Tasman Sea meets the Pacific Ocean.

Pause for morning tea with fresh-baked pastries, then take a walk on the beach—and maybe a quick dip—at Tapotupotu Bay. Next, head to Te Paki to surf the giant sand dunes and see the quicksand streams.

Following the Cape Reinga tour, board the plane again for the scenic return flight to Paihia, which takes in remote Parengarenga Harbour and Great Exhibition Bay, where you see dazzling white silica dunes and spectacular coastline.

This Cape Reinga excursion concludes with drop-off at your hotel in Paihia.

Compare with driving 3 hours one way yourself, this is probably the most economic option.

Guys are very professional, can't say anything bad about it. If you a super conscious on personal hygiene, just make sure wipe the headset before you wear it. : p

Cape Reinga half day trip

So good. Defiintely the best way to get up to the North and see so much more of the coastline than 1 month of driving could do.
