  • You’ll get picked up at 8.30 am at the Paihia Wharf by our sea shuttle who will take you on a smooth cruise to a remote and quiet bay where The Rock has been anchored overnight. After arrival and a quick safety brief we will begin cruising through the islands before you begin your adventure with a snorkelling experience. Enjoy the abundant reefs and amazing underwater world the Bay Of Islands has to offer you. If conditions are calm, we’ll gather mussels or kina from the kelp-covered outer reefs during the snorkelling. You can try them on the way home (along with the unique experience of eating sea urchins raw if you’re brave enough)
  • After snorkelling you can explore the Islands, 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
  • 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 beac hes - perfect for a game of beach cricket or volley ball. Explore the islands on foot and climb to some of the most 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!
  • We arrive back at Paihia wharf at approximately 3pm
Keep an eye out for common and bottlenose dolphins, whales and other marine life during your cruise, and have your camera ready as we get you up close to the action.
