Farewell Spit Tours

  • Pakawau
  • Tours & Activities

New Zealand's longest natural sandbar stretches 35km from the very tip of the South Island.

Farewell Spit Eco Tours began as the mail delivery to the Lighthouse keepers more than 65 years ago.

Join our local guides to explore this bird sanctuary and Wetland of international importance. They really know their stuff. Take in the panoramic views from the top of one of the huge dunes and enjoy refreshments in the old Lighthouse Keepers house at the end of the Spit.

Departure times are set by the rhythm of the tide so bookings are essential. An ideal group excursion.
