Pataua Estuary Eco-Tour

Pataua Estuary

Best on half to full tide.

One of Northland's best kept secrets. This estuary extends into the mangroves and narrow channels inland. Observe White-faced Heron, Kingfishers, Cormorants and Tui on the forest fringes.

The tour starts at Pataua South near the bridge and continues up the river We take a channel deep into mangrove forest and take refreshments on the river bank. On the full tide there is much to see further up the estuary and often stingray and schools of fish are encountered.
