Indigenous Maori experiences are offered in many, many settings, as varied as a horse ride, a forest walk, when mountain biking or quad biking, at a luxury lodge, while sailing on a waka, or when visiting a marae. Where and from what they are delivered are important. But they are not the key to the Maori experience - it is the people who make the difference. As the whakatauki (proverb) says, “He aha te mea o te Ao? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata.” (What is most important in the world? It is people, it is people, it is people).

Together with our Maori partners, we are proud to deliver on the promise of real people, real life, and a really good time.

Waka Quest    

All content Copyright © Navigator Tours Ltd 2008-15

Waka Quest is a cultural tourism tourism experience in Auckland that reaches out to other regions around Aotearoa – New Zealand and the Pacific.

Stories and experiences based on voyages of discovery by great Polynesian Navigators and  the amazing whakapapa (genealogy) story of Maori and of Tamaki Makarau (Auckland)

The Waka Quest experience is much more than a sail boat ride on the harbour. If you want to know about the origins of Maori, seek to understand the complex rituals, customs, artistry and oral traditions of Maori people, then let your Waka hosts captivate you while sailing on the Waitemata.
