Dive Tatapouri - Feed the Stingrays


Tatapouri, Gisborne, East Coast




By arrangement



Do something delightful and try your hand at feeding the wild stingrays.  These beautiful creatures will glide up to you and let you feed them by hand.  It's certainly a wonderful experience - with a capable Dive Tatapouri guide. 

Don't attempt to do this yourself.  Dive Tatapouri offers this experience and provides waders (as you'll walk out onto the rocks).  They suggest you allow 2 hours and bookings are essential.

While they do allow feeding, if rays are unsettled or if there is a very large group then may not be possible. The Reef Experience operates around low tides, so contact them first with regards to timings and bookings.
