Full Description

Board our beautiful 45ft luxury sailing catamaran "Serenity" at 9:45am for a 10:00am departure. Once we have cleared the harbour, we hoist the sails and make our way out into the stunning and scenic Bay of Islands. Relax and take in the sights with a complimentary tea or coffee as we cruise past some of the 144 islands that make up the Bay of Islands. If you are lucky we may see dolphins, whales, penguins or even seals on our voyage.

Your experienced and knowledgeable skipper will select a bay that is sheltered from the prevailing weather conditions and drop anchor, allowing for some exploration of the island and fun in the water. Do as much or as little as you want. If you are feeling adventurous, you may want to hike to the nearest viewpoint, or we have snorkelling gear, beach games and paddleboards available for your use. If you simply want to relax, we have plenty of lounging areas onboard for you to take full advantage of or you may want to pick a quiet spot on the beach. 

At the end of the day, we heave the anchor and set sail to return back to Paihia. A complimentary beverage is offered during this afternoon sail. We arrive back in Paihia at approx 4:00pm.

Alcoholic beverages are available for purchase at the fully licenced bar throughout the cruise, cash and card are both accepted.
