Why do we love this
We love the personalised feel of this tour. You'll travel in small groups and experience the Bay of Islands minus the crowds!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Escape to the Bay of Islands for a day of sun, sand and wildlife! Travelling in a small group (maximum 20) you'll discover the best the area has to offer. This is the way to experience the Bay of Islands!
Get ready to begin your cruise around 144 subtropical islands! Your day begins at 10.00 am. Please arrive 10 minutes before departure time.
Enjoy two island stopovers where you can discover your surrounds on a series of short walks along native New Zealand bush trails. Plus, you can enjoy the scenery even more with a beachside morning tea and coffee!
As you explore, you'll enjoy breathtaking 360-degree viewpoints over the bay. You'll also learn more about the area with onboard commentary about the history of the Bay of Islands.
There's also the chance for wildlife spotting throughout the day, so keep your eyes peeled for marine wildlife, penguins and gannets! There might even be the chance to taste Kina (seafood) fresh from the ocean!
And you won't just be exploring the Bay of Islands from the boat either... the sheltered waters of the islands are the perfect place to dive underwater for a spot of snorkelling. The calm water waters are also the perfect place to give paddle-boarding a go if you're a first timer!
After a day on the water, it's time to return to the mainland. You'll arrive back at approximately 3.00 pm.
