Itinerary

Day 1Auckland
Arrive at any time. Arrive in Auckland at any time. There are no planned activities during the day, so check into the hotel and explore the city. Visit the Maritime Museum, walk the waterfront, or even take the ferry to Waiheke Island.
Day 2Auckland/Bay of Islands
Travel north via backroads, stopping to see giant kauri trees, and go for an included snorkel at Goat Island Marine Reserve (seasonal). Board a large houseboat for an overnight trip through the beautiful Bay of Islands. Depart early and travel to a local reserve with giant kauri trees. Native to New Zealand, these trees are some of the largest in the world. Learn about their importance to European settlement in New Zealand. Head to the Goat Island Marine Reserve for an included activity of snorkelling to see abundant sea life (seasonal). Continue on to the Bay of Islands and board a houseboat – your home for the night.
Day 3Bay of Islands/Paihia
Enjoy free time in the morning on the boat. Choose to do a number of included water activities like kayaking, snorkelling, fishing or visiting nearby islands. Disembark and explore Paihia before a Kiwi barbecue. Enjoy a morning of activities from our boat base. Then travel back to the mainland for a walk around the small town of Paihia. An optional visit to the Treaty House in the nearby town of Waitangi is highly recommended.
Day 4Paihia/Auckland
Enjoy a free morning to relax. Opt to swim with dolphins, skydive, or check out the historic Waitangi Treaty Grounds. Return to Auckland in the early evening where the tour finishes upon arrival.
