Itinerary: Day One

Today you will visit locations of historic and cultural significance, enjoy awesome scenery and swim in clear lagoons. From these locations you can take part in all sorts of outdoor activities: kayaking, snorkelling, gathering fresh sea food, exploring WWII remains, trekking across islands and visiting ancient Maori fortifications.

If conditions are calm, we’ll gather mussels from the kelp-covered outer reefs to enjoy on the way home. You’ll learn to paddle a kayak in safe, blue waters and explore the coastline and sea caves for the more experienced. You will have time to enjoy the remote beaches - perfect for a game of beautiful lookout points for views across the Bay of Islands.
On the homeward cruise, we’ll enjoy those mussels, freshly steamed, and watch out for the abundant marine and bird life… hopefully we’ll even see dolphins!
