    As mentioned my husband like to fish and dive so there is a chance there will be a fishing, diving or family outing on our boat. Also we can drop you off at the local transport hub either Papakura or Pukekohe for you to go into Auckland city.
    We also have a bicycle if you wish to ride into one of these centres. Buses leave from just down the road to go all over the north Island as well.
    South Auckland offer's some beautiful West coast beaches and also with Auckland 40 mins away there is a range of city activities to explore as well.
