West Coast Scenic Waterways

Cruise, stay & play with us at Scenic Waterways Retreat. Experience the 'untamed natural wilderness' of the West Coast. Soak in our wood-fired hot tub, while star gazing, and enjoy delicious wholesome food produced on-site. Take time to recharge.



We are an eco-tourism business providing accommodation, wholesome food, eco cruises and freedom kayak hire on one of New Zealand's most highly valued wetlands. We provide bike hire to cycle a spectacular section on the west coast wilderness trail, and hire out our wonderful hot tubs. We aim to enrich our clients' appreciation of our natural surroundings, it's unique biodiversity, and provide them a setting to relax, recharge, and restore before returning to their daily pressures of life.
