What to expect

Add a special experience to your cruising holiday and see the Bay of Islands your way on this full-day, private sightseeing shore excursion tour of the region’s major attractions and highlights. You will learn a lot about the Bay, its surroundings and the whole of New Zealand and delight in the opportunity to enjoy a Rainbow Falls riverwalk.

The sunny Bay of Islands will provide you with golden beaches, secluded coves, tranquil harbors, warm waters, dramatic coastlines, amazing walks, and a spectacular forest. The beautiful natural attractions are only a fraction of what this area has to offer. The perfect place to enjoy your time ashore!

History hangs heavily in the Bay of Islands. Local historical sites can be found throughout the region including Paihia, Kerikeri, Russell as well as one of New Zealand’s most significant historical sites – the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. The site of the earliest settlements of both Māori and Europeans, Bay of Islands is unquestionably the birthplace of the nation.

Enjoy Haruru Falls. Located just around the corner from Paihia, it showcases a breath-taking waterfall. Visit the Stone Store and Kemp House, two of
the oldest surviving buildings in the country. See the stunning Rainbow Falls in Kerikeri’s outskirts. This tour includes a wonderful 1.5 hours return walk to Rainbow Falls as well as to Wharepuke Falls.

Do not forget the scrumptious food and wine and indulge yourself with the delicious fresh local produce, seafood, gourmet goods, and award-winning
wines available across the entire region.
