Favourite thing about being Tours Manager?
Supporting our skilled and experienced team to deliver an awesome experience both on and off the water gives me a great sense of achievement. Throughout my travels, I have not experienced a waka tour in any other capital city in the world so I love sharing this with our visitors.

One of my favourite tours was taking the Fijian Rugby League team on tour.  Fantastic teamwork, athletic prowess and timing saw the waka move gracefully on the water.
