About this Event

Waka hourua: Double Hulled Canoe

Build a double hulled waka with a modern twist!

Learn a little about the traditional Māori navigation process! Māori navigators used ‘Te kapehu whetū (star compass) - which divides the 360 degrees around a canoe in the open ocean into different whare (houses) – to keep their waka on course.

Then modernise your waka with a motor!

Did you know that many of the current waka now have motors on them to offer more control in and around the harbour?

Strictly ages 9-14 years old. Due to high demand, if you are unable to attend, please cancel your ticket to free it up for another person.
