Amy and Emily are a mother and daughter team who enjoy the wild side of New Zealand’s East Coast of the North Island. Both highly trained guides and native to this area, they have set up Wildside Adventures to show locals and visitors the adventures you can discover within the breathtaking wilderness and along the shore line of the East Coast.
If you are in NZ for an extended stay, then add the East Coast to your bucket list, join Amy and Emily on everything from an evening glow worm walk on their own property, to half day and multi day walking and snorkelling.
Caravan accommodation is available on their 21 acres near Ohope on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island.
Since I was a child, I’ve been passionate about the Great Outdoors. I’m always on the hunt for an outdoor adventure, whether river riding, snorkelling, surfing, horseback riding, bike riding, or heading off into the bush on a hunting escapade. I live and breathe adventure. I look forward to meeting you and giving you the opportunity to create your own memorable adventure.
I am trained PADI dive master, and in addition to leading tours, I am also in my second year of study to become a marine biologist. I love pointing out the local marine life. I also enjoy sharing from my life experiences, providing tips on free diving, spearfishing, catching crayfish, and studying edible plants in the bush. I’m always up for an adventure, and I can’t wait to take you on one, too!
