Experience Sandboarding

in Hokianga

Slide down the sand dunes on a boogie board

You won’t believe how much fun it is to go sandboarding at Hokianga Harbour and slide down the dunes until you’ve done it. Then, you’ll want to go again and again!

Sliding down the sand dunes on sandboards is fun for all ages, and a suitable activity for families, couples and anyone with a sense of adventure.

We’ll take you there by boat, from Ōpononi Wharf across the Harbour, and you can use our sandboards at no additional charge. The friendly crew will give you the safety instructions you need, explain everything, and answer any questions you may have. All you have to do is have fun and enjoy.

You can race down the sand dunes at top speed if you like and at high tide, you can slide straight into the water. If you’d rather go a little slower or if you don’t want to get wet, you can use your feet as breaks to slow you down. The hardest part is getting back up the hill to do it again. Your legs will get a good workout, but you’re sure to have a smile on your face.

If sandboarding down the dunes isn’t your cup of tea, you could always take a harbour cruise or take a fishing charter.

Need to know

The Hokianga Express boat departs 7 days a week from 10.00am (weather permitting and depending on passenger numbers) with trips leaving on the hour going back and forth to the sand dunes. The finishing time also depends on the weather and passenger numbers.
