Whitianga Tours and Taxi

Taxi, private hire and passenger transfer service based in Whitianga, using a luxurious hybrid SUV. Serving greater Mercury Bay area and offering private transport between Whitianga and a number of cities, airports and the Coromandel Ferry terminal.


Since 2012 Whitianga Tours & Taxi (ex Coromandel Nature Tours) has been providing private passenger transport connecting with Whitianga on the Coromandel Peninsula. Besides private hire (hire our car with chauffeur on an hourly rate), we also offer affordable airport and city transfer (between Whitianga and Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga) and ferry transfer (connecting Whitianga with the Auckland/Waiheke-Coromandel Ferry which arrives near Coromandel Town). We also provide a taxi service with zoned pricing (rather than metered) in Whitianga and surroundings. We care about the environment and pride ourselves to be the first and (as of March 2022) only passenger service in Whitianga and Mercury Bay area using a low-emission hybrid vehicle.
