What you can expect

Glide across bright blue waters between lush green isles on a comfortable boat that immerses you in the spectacular wonders of the Bay of Islands. Sail out to where massive boulders rise above the sea and go kayaking, snorkelling, and searching for fresh seafood you can enjoy onboard.

Ride out into the ocean from Paihia Wharf on a sea shuttle that takes you to a remote bay where your boat, The Rock, has been anchored overnight. Climb onto this comfortable vessel for a quick safety briefing before the anchor is pulled up and your exploration of the islands gets underway.

Watch in awe from the deck as you pass by dozens of stunning islands covered in dense foliage with white-sand beaches lining their shores. After some time on the boat, disembark to go kayaking or snorkelling, and enjoy time to relax on the remote beaches.

If conditions allow, take part in the fun-filled activity of gathering mussels from the kelp-covered outer reefs. Once back aboard the boat for your homeward cruise, enjoy the mussels you've collected, freshly steamed, and watch out for the abundant marine and bird life before returning to Paihia Wharf.
