The one and only, totally original, "Waimea Crossing" with Strike Adventure. Right on the doorstep of Nelson City is a special marine adventure..
Take a ride with us and explore the Waimea Estuary, the South Island’s largest estuary that covers 3500 Hectares, 65 kilometres of coastline, with 14 islands.
Travel between islands, up channels, and experience views that even the locals haven’t seen. Explore the Waimea Estuary from water level with this unique offering that operates between Monaco Peninsula and Mapua.
Our trips have flexible start times to take account of tidal flows, channels, and water levels that we can navigate safely but bigger craft can’t. Discuss the history and experience the beautiful marine environment with our experienced and friendly guide.
Our trips include a coffee and slice of cake for each passenger at a waterfront café at the halfway point.
