Tractor Tours to Cape Kidnappers

Tractor Tours to Cape Kidnappers

Come on a unique, fun eco-experience tour, in a beautiful and iconic part of the Hawke’s Bay region. Our ‘one of a kind’ tour provides a 4-hour mild adventure, travelling along the majestically rugged coastline from Clifton to Cape Kidnappers, on vintage American tractors. The Cape is not only home to four gannet colonies which bustle with the daily rituals of these amazing seabirds, but is one of the most geologically fascinating parts of our country. The trip is suitable for all ages and fitness levels, and our experienced guides have safely transported passengers and helped them enjoy this amazing area for almost 70 years. A ride with Gannet Beach Adventures can be many things – a nice day beside the sea, an opportunity to view the amazing wildlife, or a trip back in time as told by the layers in the coastal cliffs. Put them all together and it is a really special experience – come and see for yourself!
