Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $169 USD / Adult
Your tour begins with a short drive to Eddyline Brewery, the New Zealand outpost of Colorado export, for a quick "bevvy" before beginning your cycling adventure along the winding coastal section of the famous Tasman's Great Taste Trail towards the seaside town of Mapua. This section of the trail is simply amazing with views from the coastal boardwalks of the Waimea Estuary, crossing the spectacular Waimea Swing Bridge, and entering Rabbit Island where you'll meander along the seafront to the ferry landing. Along the way, look out for the native and migratory birds that make this fertile farmland home. A short trip across the channel on the iconic Mapua Ferry lands you at the Wharf where you can enjoy the relaxing vibe and atmosphere, explore galleries, shops, the local boutique brewery, or sample some great food and beverages at the many restaurants, wine bars, and cafés in town.
