Explore the beautiful Bay of Islands on a full day return trip from Auckland, including a half-day cruise in search of dolphins and whales.
Board your modern, comfortable coach and leave the hustle and bustle of Auckland behind as we travel north to Paihia, the jewel of the Bay of Islands. This popular seaside town boasts beautiful golden beaches and boutique style shopping.
After a few hours enjoying the delights of Paihia you’ll join our three-hour afternoon cruise around the spectacular Bay of Islands.
Feel the wind in your hair as you soak up the outstanding scenery, cruising out through some of the 144 islands of the Bay towards Cape Brett with its remote lighthouse and the famous 'Hole in the Rock' at Motukokako Island.
If conditions permit, your skipper may even drive the boat right through the hole!
Have your camera at the ready throughout your cruise, as the Bay is home to a vast array of marine and bird life including dolphins, penguins and whales.
After your Bay of Islands cruise, disembark at Paihia wharf and board the coach for a comfortable return journey to Auckland.
Departs: 7:30am from Auckland. Returns to Auckland at approx 8.15pm.
