About Bay Of Islands Cruise & Kayak
Nature Cruise With Kayaking to Waterfalls designed for all age's & great value, Perfect for first timers & experienced kayakers. A Safe whitewater experience with lots of wildlife, Boat Cruise, Local history & Great photo opportunities. We cruise on our vessel along our calm coastline up a meandering river where guests then transfer to kayaks to explore up close, paddle through mangrove forests or photograph a colony of sea birds that nest in trees hanging over the river, then onto our final destination where a waterfall drops into the sea. At the waterfall the fun & adrenaline starts, here even first timers can safely experience paddling in foaming white water or even kayak under the waterfall itself. We are an All Age Adventure with mother boat on hand: Our warm vessel is on hand to give you or family a rest if you need. We work hard & realise the importance of customer satisfaction, good value & having fun. 'Day Cruise & Kayak' Cruise operates at 11am. 'Twilight Safari" Cruise operates at 4pm. 'Night Safari' Cruise operates at 7pm. Our 7 Points of Difference: * Extreme Value * Safer, Boat on hand * More time for kayaking * Rest when you or your family want * Fast Sit on Kayaks that don't Trap you * Sit on kayaks allow you to go under the Waterfalls * Night Kayaking & Waterfalls is a brilliant NZ Experience!

Had an excellent time with Dan and Ace on the Cruise - Kayak tour this afternoon. They're both super lovely and helpful, clearly know a lot about the Bay of Islands and have a ton of entertaining stories to share. Ruby is great too - she handled my numerous queries and questions with utmost ease. Such a great time at such an affordable price, would definitely recommend everyone to support this lovely local family business.

This experience was amazing. Taylor and Red were awesome hosts, very welcoming. My 5 kids, husband and I had a blast and loved going under the waterfall. My youngest even got to drive the boat, thank you Taylor it made his day.

This is a fantastic experience. Taylor, our host and guide, was very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. He was born here and clearly loved this special part of the region. The experience was well organised, safe, and provided a unique opportunity to get up close with the stunning environment. All equipment provided to ensure a fun and safe experience on the water.

It was soon time for use to go back to the ship but we had a great day out! Would definitely like to spend more Than 7 hours there ... maybe ( days & visit the top/north island of New Zealand!

We had a great trip with Taylor. We were the only ones that booked the morning tour. Instead of reschedule us Taylor was happy to ake us on the tour. Really nice guy, very interessted in the people that join him on the boat. Showed us many pretty spaces and told great stories before heading to the falls. It was really cool the see the waterfall from a different perspective. We would really recommend this tour. It has small groups and a really personal feeling. You can tell they have a passion for the area and are not just in this for making money on tourist as some tours do.
