Heli, walk & water taxi-coast to coast

This great experience takes most of the day and can be done by flying into Masons Bay 1st or by getting picked up after the water taxi and walk across. The time of the high tide is essential for the water taxi leg from Halfmoon Bay to the Freshwater Landing. The track between Masons Bay and the Freshwater River landing takes about 4 hours. A reasonable level of fitness is required, also sturdy footwear and bring a rain coat just in case.

The Gutter

At the south end of Masons Bay is a beautiful small sheltered lagoon. Enjoy stepping out onto the white sandy beach for some great photo oppotunities before returning to Halfmoon Bay via the Rakeahua valley.
