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.
Please allow one hour for the duration of this experience.

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.
