Full Description

Embark on an unforgettable full-day tour from Auckland to the stunning Bay of Islands, a region steeped in Maori history and natural beauty. Located on the east coast of the Far North District of New Zealand's North Island, the Bay of Islands was the first settlement for Maori tribes 700 years ago.

Your adventure begins with a convenient pick-up from Auckland city, followed by a scenic three-hour drive north into the Far North District. Along the way, we'll stop at the beautiful Whangarei Waterfalls, where you can hike around the falls for 30 minutes and capture amazing photos of this picturesque spot.

Upon arrival in Paihia, you'll join a 4.5-hour guided cruise aboard a catamaran, exploring the bays and 144 islands in the area. This exhilarating cruise includes sightings of dolphins and other marine life in New Zealand, offering a close-up view of the region's rich biodiversity.

One of the highlights of the cruise is a visit to the famous Hole in the Rock on Motukokako Island. As the boat sails to the end of the Cape Brett Peninsula, you'll witness this iconic natural landmark up close. The cruise also includes a stopover on Urupukapuka Island, where you can relax on the beach or hike to the top of the island for breathtaking 360-degree views of the Bay of Islands.

After an exciting day of exploration and adventure, we'll head back to Auckland via the scenic roads of Northland, offering more beautiful vistas to enjoy along the way. This tour includes complimentary snacks and water, ensuring your comfort throughout the journey.
