This trip has the best of both. Enjoy a Scenic Cruise from Kaiteriteri to Bark Bay. If tides permit we will float into the Falls River Lagoon to the swing bridge and explore the small inlet of Frenchmans Bay. If the winds are right, we'll put up the kayak sail then slowly make our way down past the golden beaches and rocky outcrops to Anchorage where our Sea Shuttle will return us to Kaiteriteri.
