Just a few hours of Auckland lies the beautiful Bay of Islands region, a marine playground with a fascinating history. Blessed with a subtropical climate, the Bay of Islands is home to stunning white sand beaches, deserted islands and abundant marine wildlife.
Our Bay of Islands day tours take you to the most scenic locations by land and sea. Cruise out to the famous 'Hole in the Rock', go dolphin and whale watching or land on a pristine island. Venturing even further north, take a day tour to Cape Reinga at the very top of the country and discover remote beaches, gigantic sand dunes and unforgettable views.
The small towns and settlements of the Bay of Islands were the backdrop to some of the most significant events in early New Zealand history. Cross the harbour from Paihia to Russell, the nation's first capital and home to a host of historic sites. Or visit the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, where New Zealand's founding document between the British and Māori people was signed in 1840, and gain an insight into Māori culture and the story of our country.
