Pack a picnic and swimmers and make a day of it on this one-hour scenic cruise taking in the sun-kissed islands, bay and working port of Tauranga Harbour. With a hop off option at Matakana Island, you'll be able to relax and enjoy lunch and a swim before catching another cruise back to shore.
Get set for a day of fun on this one-hour scenic cruise of Tauranga Harbour in the Bay of Plenty, with a cool hop off/hop on option at Matakana Island offered at no extra cost for morning cruises. Cruise past the white sands and headland of Mt Maunganui, consistently voted New Zealand's best beach, past coastal forest, small village settlements, and islands. Essentially two flooded lakes, Tauranga Harbour is vast and dazzling, with an ever-changing landscape and a huge working port. Spot penguins, small NZ fur seals, white-fronted terns, oystercatchers, red billed gulls and other sea birds, and admire the Statue of Tangaroa, the Maori God of the Sea perched along the harbour foreshore. For those on morning cruises, pack swimmers and some lunch to make the most of the Matakana Island hop off option. This barrier island is the ideal spot to spend a couple of hours sunning, swimming and exploring the 20-kilometre stretch of sandy beach before catching an afternoon cruise back to shore.

RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
