Journey north to the beautiful resort town of Paihia in the Bay of Islands. You'll have time to explore this charming seaside town before joining your afternoon cruise around the spectacular Bay of Islands. On board our specially designed vessel, you might be lucky enough to pass through the famous 'Hole in the Rock' at Motukokako Island (subject to sea conditions). You might also have the opportunity to see many types of marine and bird life in this region, including penguins, dolphins and whales. At the end of your cruise, rejoin your coach for the journey back to Auckland, arriving in the evening.
