We the head towards Westshore travelling over some the over 4000 hectares of land that came out of the sea during the 1931 earthquake.
We then travel to the northern coast of the city through the seaside suburb of Westshore and on to historic West Quay and Ahuriri the original port of Napier.

We then head in to the vibrant City Centre and drive through the streets of the Art Deco Capital of the World. We take in several of the surviving buildings and view many of the beautiful Art Deco buildings built in the aftermath of the devastating 1931 earthquake. We then return to the Marine Parade and the i-Site bus stop in plenty of time for your shuttle bus back to your ship at Napier Port.
