Characterised by deep azure waters, turquoise green islands and diverse wildlife, there is no better way to experience the Bay of Islands than on a 50ft catamaran! After a briefing, you will depart Paihia Wharf and sail into the expansive waters, on the look out for the world's smallest penguins, seabirds and other mammals like dolphins and whales. Breathe in the fresh sea breeze before stopping off at a secluded island for an hour of snorkelling, swimming and exploring the island by foot. After immersing yourself in this wonder-filled nature reserve, head back to the boat for a delicious BBQ lunch. The remainder of the cruise is spent dolphin-searching. As the only yacht licensed to view and research dolphins, this is your chance to learn and be amazed by dolphins and the enthusiastic crew. Every booking contributes directly to marine research and conservation.
