One day tour from Auckland to the most picturesque and popular site. The bay of Islands boasts more than 140 beautiful sub tropical islands and the site that the earliest contact between the indigenous population and European settlers took place in New Zealand. On this tour you will be picked up from the hotel and driven on a guided tour to the Bay of Islands. 

Once we have reached this amazing site you will head out for a half day cruise on the Explore Discover the Bay trip. Which includes dolphin watching (whenever possible), a visit to the famous Hole in the Rock plus a BBQ lunch on a beautiful bay island. All of this while cruising and being guided through this breath taking area. 

After the cruise we will slowly make our way back to Auckland stopping for bush walks, waterfall viewing or to see the giant Kauri, your choice!

After the tour our friendly staff will drive you back to your hotel.
