Stargazing exploration of the night sky
Stargazing Punakaiki – Join us for a naked eye exploration of the star studded southern night sky above the West Coast of the South Island where there is almost no light, dust or air pollution.

Trips take approximately 1-1.5 hours, usually beginning 30 minutes after sunset or later by arrangement.
