That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.

Immerse yourself in the beauty and wonder of the Bay of Islands during this island and wildlife cruise. Spot dolphins, penguins and seabirds in their natural habitat and stop over at a nature reserve island for an hour of exploration and snorkelling. A delicious BBQ lunch is included.
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.
This experience is part of the Responsible Range as it was awarded a Qualmark Enviro-Gold endorsement.
