What you can expect

Discover one of New Zealand's best sailing, fishing, and tourist destinations with a half-day cruise that shows what the Bay of Islands is all about. Home to one of the most spectacular ecosystems, the Bay has become renowned as a world-class playground and offers you an experience like no other.

A biofuel-powered catamaran carries you out from Paihia Wharf, offering comfort with an abundance of indoor and outdoor seating as you cruise across the water. Visit the iconic Hole in the Rock at the island of Motu Kokao, meet the local dolphins.

Along the way, you can learn about the incredible programme of ecological restoration taking place throughout the eastern Bay of Islands, and even lend a hand. Encounter wildlife at home in their natural environment and get to know the island's culture and history before you return to the wharf as the cruise draws to a close.
