from Helensville past Shelly Beach, South Head, Tinopai to Pahi, where we join our coach  for

the short journey across to Dargaville. Our accommodation for  the evening is the Northern Wairoa Hotel and the Central Hotel,  These old time hotels are clean and comfortable, however not all rooms have ensuite facilities.

If you  require Motel accommodation this is available at an extra. $45.00 per person twin share,ie$90, Motel single supplement + $65. The Motels are out of the main town centre.

Day Two:  We Cruise from Dargaville through the Northern Wairoa River, past  Te Kopuru, Ruawai, Kelly's Bay,   and many other beautiful Bays and Inlets, where  early gum diggers camped before  making our way past Pouto Point across the Kaipara Heads before returning to Helensville.
