TAP FOR MORE INFO:

Imagine being able to experience one of New Zealand’s most famous marine reserves without getting wet. 

In The Coromandel, you can watch the magical marine life of Te-Whanganui-a-Hei, aka Cathedral Cove, through the custom-built glass panels of Whitianga’s Glass Bottom Boat.  

Get a whole new perspective of The Coromandel coastline, from Shakespeare Cliff to Cooks Beach, Champagne and Gemstone bays, exploring sea caves, volcanic pinnacles and the peninsula’s signature white-sand beaches. 

At Cathedral Cove, you’ll experience The Coromandel’s only marine reserve from above the surface, or if the water is too irresistible, take the plunge and snorkel amongst the fish.
