We love this cruise for the welcoming vibes you get when coming aboard! And because it's six hours of non-stop adventure!
Your Bay of Island Day Cruise starts with an early morning pick up at 8:15 am from Paihia Wharf. You'll be collected by a sea shuttle that will take you to a secluded bay, where you'll find 'The Rock' ready and waiting for you!
After a quick safety briefing, it's time to up the anchor and head out for a day of fun! Try kayaking, snorkelling and paddleboarding, and enjoy taking in the stunning scenery this paradise is known for. As you travel (if conditions allow) you'll gather mussels from the kelp-covered outer reefs to enjoy on your way home!
Throughout your journey, you'll visit beautiful scenic points and will be able to explore WW11 remains and ancient Maori fortifications on an island walk. There's time here for some relaxing too, and you can partake in a game of cricket or beach volleyball!
Making your way home, you'll snack on the freshly steamed mussels you collected earlier. If you're feeling brave, there's also the chance to try raw sea urchins!
As you travel back to Paihia, watch out for the abundant marine and bird life. There's a good chance you'll see dolphins too.
You'll arrive back approximately 3.00 pm.
