Hello, we are in Auckland for a few days then plan on a overnight trip to Coromandel. We were going to drive to Hahei beach to take a half day sea kayak of the Cathedral Cove area starting at 1pm We are going to leave Auckland at around 7am to give us plenty of time for the drive. We are going to overnight in Whitianga then the next day drive back to the Auckland Airport but stopping in at Coromandel Town and Thames for lunch. Will we have enough time for this with stops and the drive back? Our flight leaves at 6:35 pm so I'm thinking will have plenty of time to make it to the airport by 4pm. Any suggestions on the route/itinery that I should think about? We are going to stop at various places along the route to sight see (i.e. falls, rapura, etc)
Thanks so much.
