Awesome Bay Of Islands Tours
CRUISE, SWIM AND FROLIC IN THE BIRTHPLACE OF NEW ZEALAND
The Bay of Islands is a stunning region just a few hours north of Auckland. Relax on sandy beaches, travel to the top of the country or explore the Bay’s 144 islands and warm, sheltered waters abundant in marine life.
From the Bay of Islands, take a day tour to Cape Reinga at the very tip of New Zealand and see the spot where the Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean collide. The Cape has an important place in Māori legend – spend some time at this special spot and you’ll surely agree it has a very special atmosphere. During your Cape Reinga day tour you’ll also travel along spectacular 90 Mile Beach before sand-boarding down its giant sand dunes (if you’re feeling adventurous!).
Many visitors to the Bay of Islands base themselves in the small resort town of Paihia. This is the starting point of most Bay of Islands cruises. Step on board a dolphin watching cruise and explore the islands, winding your way out to the impressive ‘Hole in the Rock’ as you keep an eye out for marine life.
From Paihia you can also join a day tour to the remote and beautiful Hokianga region on the west coast, and into the legendary Waipoua Forest, home of giant kauri trees up to 2,500 years old!
