Once you reach the settlement, you’ll go on a mini adventure around the area where you’ll find out how this piece of land had played great significance in the history of New Zealand, and how it had transformed from a lawless ‘Hell Hole of the Pacific’ to a seaport of tranquility today. You’ll learn all these interesting historical facts and local insights from your ever engaging knowledgeable guide on board. Get to visit the most iconic landmarks in the area such as the 19th-century Pompallier House and the oldest church in New Zealand, the Christ Church.
