Whataroa is the de­par­ture point for White Heron Sanc­tu­ary Tours. For over 29 years the Arnold fam­ily have been de­light­ing vis­i­tors by shar­ing this world-class at­trac­tion with them. The 2.5 hour tour con­sists of a short minibus ride to con­nect with a jet-boat for a gen­tle 20 minute scenic cruise into the Wai­tan­giroto Na­ture Re­serve (area ac­ces­si­ble by boat only). Once in the re­serve there is a short walk through an­cient kahikatea rain­for­est to a pur­pose built view­ing hide to ob­serve the mag­nif­i­cent white heron (Ko­tuku) in their nat­u­ral nest­ing en­vi­ron­ment. The Royal Spoon­bill and the Lit­tle Shag also share this spe­cial area and all can be easily seen from the hide. White Heron Sanc­tu­ary Tours is the orig­i­nal and only tour to visit the White Heron nest­ing site. Tours op­er­ate with a Depart­ment of Con­ser­va­tion con­ces­sion and en­try is by per­mit only. An ex­cep­tional tour with va­ri­ety, suit­able for all age groups.
