Embark on a voyage of discovery as you cruise around the breathtaking Bay of Islands. This fun-filled adventure includes two remote island stopovers, walks to beautiful viewpoints, snorkelling, swimming, paddleboarding, wildlife spotting and more.
Treat yourself or a loved one to a scenic cruise around the Bay's 144 subtropical islands. Departing from Paihia Wharf, you'll begin cruising towards the famous Twin Lagoons at Roberton Island, said to be the most photographed spot in the whole Bay of Islands. Listen to fascinating commentary about the landscape and history of the area before you disembark to take a short walk to the island lookout point. Afterwards, return to the beach where you'll be met with a tasty morning tea spread of coffee, tea and biscuits. Take some to explore the beautiful tidal lagoons before you re-board the boat to continue on to your next island stop. Keep an eye out for marine life and sea birds along the way - and if you're lucky, you might just spot a pod of dolphins swimming by.
Arriving at the second island, you'll spend the afternoon exploring with a variety activities on offer. Snorkel in sheltered reefs, glide through the crystal clear waters on a stand up paddleboard, stroll along the island trails and perhaps taste some fresh Kina straight from the ocean! You will return to Paihia Wharf at approximately 3pm.
