Okarito Boat Tours

A West Coaster for 40+ years, your guide Swade will help you identify the variety of wading birds, native forest birds, and the ancient plants of the rainforest during your tour exploring the magnificent and untouched serenity of New Zealand’s largest unmodified wetland, over 3000 hectares and part of the South Westland World Heritage area. The open air boat allows a total sensory experience with 360 degree views as you drift quietly amongst feeding birds including the graceful Kotuku – Great White heron, Royal Spoonbills, the intrepid godwits from Siberia and Alaska, the leggy Pied Stilts, and many others. The towering Southern Alps, Mount Cook and Mount Tasman and Franz Josef Glacier make for a spectacular backdrop on clear days.
