Bay of Islands Tall Ship Sailing on 'R. Tucker Thompson' Including BBQ Lunch

200 reviews
Top off a trip to the Bay of Islands with a sailing adventure aboard the “R. Tucker Thompson.” You can help hoist the sails on this tall ship, a replica of a 100-year-old schooner. It’s ideal for exploring the bays and beaches of the maritime park. Catch a complimentary ferry from Paihia to Russell and enjoy a barbecue lunch provided on board.

The Coastal Walkways in and around Russell can't be beat. A lot of time and energy is spent with their upkeep. Our favorite is to walk from where we were house sitting to Okiato or the other way to the town of Russell. The boardwalk through the mangrove trees is incredible.

We did the walk as a couple one morning - from the car ferry terminal in Okiato all the way to Russel. Stages 1,2 and 3 are beautiful. The track is hilly at times, so a good level of fitness is required. The walk takes you through beautiful native forests and mangroves. When you get to stage 4 though (about 1/2 way from Okiato to Russel) the track is mostly along a busy road, which runs like a highway in holiday season. Nothing much to see, so I would definitely recommend to avoid it.

If you haven't the time or energy to complete it all, the part with the board walk is particularly lovely, and if you can combine it with walking to the winery it makes a very enjoyable day.

A great walk through beautiful scenery. Took us 2.5 hours. The first part is thru bush and is challenging with some steep climbs. The latter part is easier.

Although this walkway is still a work in progress it is well worth doing. It is about 8 kms from Okiato to Russell starting across a series of ridges and then dropping to a series of boardwalks across the mangroves. They claim fern birds can be seen but I missed them. From the oyster farm it is mostly on the road. Rain was threatening so I did not muck about - Took about 2 hours, but you could have a more leisurely stroll.
