Full Description

“Afternoon Harbour cruise. Tauranga City via inner islands and Omokoroa Peninsula”

This three hour cruise departs from central CBD Tauranga in the afternoon after our Half Day Dolphin and Wildlife Cruise. Welcome aboard Bay Explorer, our spacious 18 metre (60 foot) vessel with 360° outdoor views.

Tauranga Harbour is extensive and includes a mixture of high intensity port facilities and contrasting quiet coastal villages, forests, open sandy beaches and bays of many coves. The cruise travels through Port of Tauranga, New Zealands largest export port and largest port by volume. We cruise to the shores of Te Puna, Omokoroa Peninsula, Mount Maunganui and the Statue of Tangaroa. Considered the most beautiful Harbour in the North Island of New Zealand.

Take photos of a lifetime! See the statue of Tangaroa, the yachts, pleasure craft, marinas, city and village landscapes as well as islands and their isolated beaches, forests, Kiwifruit and Avocado orchards.
