Small, personalised tours in the Bay of Islands. Cruise among 144 islands as we show you the highlights of the bay. 20 guests maximum, we cruise from Paihia to Roberton Island and the landing sight of Captain James Cook, where we take a walk to the island lookout point - not to be missed! After the short walk, beachside morning tea is served - Hot Chocolate, Tea, Coffee and biscuits, before cruising further into the islands. Our second island stop is a remote beach with sheltered waters, the perfect location to try Paddleboarding and snorkelling, take a short walk and explore the island, while learning about our marine environment and surrounding wildlife. Don't miss the experience, on a small, personalised and locally owned tour - join us on an Island Getaway Cruise today!
