Te Ara Moana ‘the sea-going pathway’ ~ Auckland Regional park’s 51 km sea kayak tour guide
Te Ara Moana means ‘the sea-going pathway’. It is a self-guided five day sea kayak tour along approximately 51 km of Auckland’s picturesque south eastern coastline connecting five of Auckland’s charming Regional Parks.
Te Ara Moana is one of many routes traditionally paddled by Mãori to travel between settlements, carry goods for trade and gathering food. To this day the Iwi of Tamaki Makaurau maintain strong ties with the Hauraki Gulf, Tikapa Moana (Firth of Thames) and Te Ara Moana.
