Nau mai haere mai. Come aboard the MV Takitimu. Encounter the stories of our many arrivals as we explore sites of personal, cultural, national and international significance around the Bay.

Join guides Anne McGuire and Joe Martin, who will take you on a fascinating journey of understanding, exploring 1,000 years of seafaring tradition and navigating history. Understand what it would be like to look to the horizon or to the stars and set sail into the unknown. Discover the place our earliest explorers encountered and created when they arrived on the Tākitimu, the Hourouta and Te Ikaroa-a-Rauru waka. Appreciate the multiple truths of those early interactions with the crew of the HM Bark Endeavour some 400 years later.

The MV Takitimu offers a relaxed encounter with our history, on what is believed to be the oldest pilot vessel in New Zealand still in operation.

What you need to know:
All children must come with a responsible adult.
There will be a full health and safety briefing before we begin each session.

Please note: This event is weather dependent. If deemed too rough, the trip will be canceled and full refunds given.

About Tuia 250 ki Tūranga 2018
Over the weekend October 5 - 8, Tuia 250 ki Tūranga is presenting a number of events for the community designed to encourage us to explore the multiple histories of our region through art, kōrero, wānanga, sailing, karakia and good old fashioned manaakitanga. Tipuna kōrero will be shared in the library for whānau, the waka hourua Tairāwhiti will be hosting visits and sails, the MV Takitimu will be taking people out into the Bay with two story tellers and historians on board ready to share insights from the past 1000 years, there will be a discussion panel, local people sharing their insights, a live cross at the Museum to an exhibition half a world away featuring local taonga, and dawn karakia as we remember the fallen and share parakuihi afterwards.
It’s all open to the whole community and entry is either free or very low cost of $5.
Check out our website for more details.
