“Our tours operate daily - we recommend the 7:30 AM Early Bird Tour or the 9 AM EcoTour - come with us to learn what makes Okarito so important and see why it is so special! The Early tour is generally very calm, beautiful reflections and bird activity. The EcoTour offers up more information and explores the rainforest waterways of the Okarito lagoon - both feature the beautiful Kotuku - Great White Heron that generally are out feeding on the lagoon.”
