Introducing New World Waka Kai – Grocery deliveries from store to shore


Because if 500,000 people were coming ‘round to yours, what would you do?



New World Whitianga launches a world-first with New World Waka Kai, delivering hassle-free groceries to Coromandel beaches via a Sealegs amphibious boat.
The brainchild of owner-operator Kerry Stanley will ensure summer shopping is easy and relaxed for thousands of customers. The Coromandel welcomes upwards of 500,000 visitors each summer, creating all sorts of issues for supermarket operators and customers alike. New World Waka Kai boat delivery is delivering to six beaches:


Now delivering to Whangapoua, Matarangi, Opito Bay, Cooks Beach, Hahei, Pauanui

  • Cooks Beach
  • Hahei
  • Pauanui
  • Opito Bay
  • Matarangi
  • Whangapoua

“Our customers are excited to be the first New Zealanders to order and receive groceries that were delivered to them by boat! We know they’d rather be at the beach and spending time with their families instead of going on a mission to the supermarket, and we’re thrilled to be able to offer them this world-first service.”
