Full Description

Departing from Paihia beachfront, the boat pulls right up to the beach where you can step aboard from the shore line. We set sail for our day's adventure to a beautiful island destination called Motuarohia Island (Roberton Island) in the Eastern Bay of Islands.

During our morning sail, we'll share some great insights to the Bay of Islands geography and history. If you're a keen sailor or wanna be sailor (kids included) please let us know we'd love to include you if you want to take part. Why not get the kids involved, they'll learn something new and use some of that energy to hoist the sails! It takes approximately 1.5 hours to sail to our island destination.

During the 1 hour island stop over, the boat is anchored right up close to the beach where you can stepp of and enjoy exploring this beautiful island, take a short walk to the top of the hill for spectacular lookout point with fantastic views out to the east, and overlooking the twin logoons.

The lagoons make for great rock pool exploring on a low tide, and a picturesque setting at high tide. Enjoy a pcked picnic lunch at a stunning picnic spot of your choice.Take a refreshing swim in the bay, or simply dig your toes in the sand and relax - the choice is yours.

Once we've finished our island adventures we set sail again, making the most of our beautiful sea breezes on the home run. So watch the wind fill the sails, kick back, relax and enjoy - a perfect end to our island adventure.
