Explore the Bay of Islands by land and sea and save up to 18% with this great value Double Dip awesomeNZ combo. Experience a dolphin watching cruise from Paihia (afternoon cruise only) and return day tour from Paihia to either Cape Reinga OR the Hokianga region.
Take a half-day Hole in the Rock cruise and explore the Bay in search of dolphins while visiting its highlights. You could be watching dolphins as they leap and play in sheltered waters - or keep an eye out for other marine mammals like whales and seals. Cruise in and out of beautiful unspoilt islands, see the remote Cape Brett Lighthouse and the impressive Hole in the Rock at Motukōkako Island.
If you choose the Cape Reinga day tour, be ready for a journey like no other with a full-day coach tour into the Far North of New Zealand. Along the way you’ll visit ancient kauri forests, drive along the sand of Ninety Mile Beach and even have a go at sandboarding – surfing down the massive sand dunes at Te Paki Stream. A visit to the very tip of Aotearoa (New Zealand) will open your eyes to Māori culture as you learn of the spiritual significance of this place where two oceans collide.
Or opt for an adventure into the Hokianga - a unique part of New Zealand, first discovered by Kupe the voyager and later, home to some of the very first European settlers. Hear the stories of this region steeped in history and experience the almost mystical atmosphere in this untouched part of the world. Visit the Waipoua Forest and meet a national icon, the mighty kauri tree Tāne Mahuta. Spend time in the beachside town of Opononi, and discover the magic of the Kawiti Caves, home to stunning rock formations and galaxies of twinkling glowworms.
