There is wide range of activities on offer in the region, something to suit every taste! One of the best ways to experience the bay is by getting out on the water and among the islands. Sailing, cruising and fishing rank high on the list, not to mention kayak and jetski tours.
But don’t forget that the Bay viewed from above is just as exquisite; take a helicopter ride, a scenic flight or a skydive over the Bay.
You mustn’t leave the area without exploring Northland’s wine trail and enjoying the local food markets.
The Bay of Islands is the ideal base from which to explore the rest of Northland: south to Tutukaka and the Poor Knights marine reserve; west to the rugged coast and the serene beauty of the Hokianga Harbour; north to Doubtless Bay, Ninety Mile Beach and Cape Reinga.
Tours to these all areas can be booked right here online. If you can’t find the activity or accommodation that suits you, just email the team and we’ll help you out with suggestions.
We want you to feel at home before you've even got here.
