Bay of Islands - Waitangi

Housed at Hobson Beach on the estate, Ngatokimatawhaorua is one of the largest ceremonial waka (canoes) in the world. Ngatokimatawhaorua takes part in each Waitangi Day commemoration, requiring a minimum of 76 paddlers to handle it safely on the water.

Hopefully this shot gives you an idea of the size. You can see someone part way along having a look
