Okarito Boat EcoTours
Swade and Paula, your guides, have been living in South Westland for over 30 years.
The tours include the Early Bird Tour, all-embracing 2-hour EcoTours, and the Okarito Wetlands Tour.
The Early Bird tour is perfect for early summer and summer conditions – and it’s outstanding for photography with glorious light and generally very calm conditions. This may be the best time to see birds feeding on the lagoon.
The Eco Tour takes two hours and is our most all-inclusive tour and covers flora and fauna from plants and trees (including rainforest orchids) to the tidal lagoons and wading birds.
The Okarito Wetlands Tour is our most concise tour, just right for an introduction to the Okarito Wetlands. Because it’s in the afternoon, you can have this as an added bonus after your morning adventures. You’ll learn about this amazing wetland environment form sea to mountains.
