Adventure Activities in the Bay of Plenty

If you’re after adventure and excitement, the Bay of Plenty’s natural environment provides all the action to get your heart racing…


White Water Rafting
Hop aboard a raft, rely on the team work of a group of people you may never have met before, throw yourself down gushing river water features with names like “The Roller Coaster” or “The Waterfall” and see if the adrenalin doesn’t start to rush! The rivers of the Bay of Plenty interior offer an amazing array of multi-grade white water rafting experiences and a number of operators run tours throughout the area.


Sky Diving
Said to be the “ultimate adrenalin buzz in the Bay”, Tauranga offers tandem sky dives out of Tauranga Airport. If throwing yourself out of a plane sounds like the experience of a life time, make sure you do it in the Bay of Plenty!


Balloon Adventure
A little more sedate, but no less exciting, balloon travel can be an amazing experience. Katikati has its own hot air balloon company operating mostly over the Waikato. They offer one hour flights and champagne style breakfasts.


Blokart Landsailing
Perfect for any age, Papamoa’s Blokart Landsailing is land based racing with a sail. Low weight and a reasonable top speed over short distances means Blokart Landsailing is exciting, action packed and a speed thrill.
