water taxi 1Oke Bay Lodge offers a water taxi service to and from Cape Brett.

We can bring you from Paihia or Russell, take you to the Lodge, you do the walk, and then we can take you back to the Lodge or Russell or Paihia.

We are completely flexible.



As a free bonus, we can take you through the famous Hole in the Rock.

How’s that!? In Paihia, they charge $175 to do that. You get it for free!
