With four generations of heritage along this coastline, Awarua Guides is well placed to deliver a unique trip no matter what the itinerary, skill level or weather conditions. Our main transport option is by helicopter or fixed wing aircraft, but we can also offer other unique packages. Travel to our remote base camp is limited by helicopter, plane, boat or foot, so any arrival or departure option is as exciting as landing on the beach.
