'Cracking day trip Really good day trip that picks you up and drops you off again. My friend and I did the day trip (31years old) started of with a small bus run into a ancient forest and a nice little walk(stretch the legs)then onto taipa beach for a break( few beers) then another short run and a early lunch( to suite the tides for 90 mile beachside also a few more beers ) after lunch another short run up to cape reinga for the most amazing views I've ever seen with the two blue oceans meeting each other,was a sunny day too which helps:-) then another short run down to the sand dunes for body boarding, we had four runs each on the body boards which are supplied by the company...'
