Maori Culture Highlights


Your local Maori guide will join you as you depart the wharf and travel towards Tauranga on your way to visit a local Ngati Ranginui Maori Marae. Arriving at this intimate Maori village, you’ll be greeted by a local Maori guide and taken on a cultural journey into the heritage of the Maoris and early New Zealand settlers on this unique and fascinating tour. Well known for their hospitality, the Tangata Whenua (local people), will make you feel at home as they graciously show you around and provide you with a wealth of information about traditional and contemporary Maori life. During the course of your memorable visit, you’ll have an opportunity to view craft-making, cooking, and experience the Maori’s oral tradition of storytelling. Continuing on, your tour will head to the Minden Lookout, weather permitting. From this excellent vantage point, you’ll have stunning views over the eastern Bay of Plenty. Before returning to the ship, you will travel via the picturesque Mount Maunganui Peninsula. Photography may be restricted at the Marae.
