Sand Boarding

The Hokianga Harbour sand dunes really are a fun place to be with a body board! Take the Hokianga Express ferry from the Opononi Wharf to the dunes – an exciting ride of about 15 minutes – and you will be dropped off with a body board to enjoy the thrill of sliding down the dunes.

Harbour crossings operate regularly so you can come back when you are ready. Just make sure you take plenty of water with you as there is nothing but sand on the other side!

The Hokianga Express ferry is also how you cross the harbour to meet the Sandtrails Hokianga dune buggy tour
