Explore the lovely inlets in the Bay of Islands during this chartered scenic cruise aboard a touring catamaran.
Depart the pier aboard a catamaran for the cruise to the Bay of Islands. One of New Zealand's most beautiful marine areas, the Bay of Islands was made famous by English explorer James Cook and writer Zane Grey. As you journey through big-game fishing waters en route to the Cape Brett Lighthouse, you will be able to see beautiful Motukokako Island and the famous Hole-in-the-Rock from the catamaran's comfortable indoor and outdoor viewing decks. Next, you will proceed for the highlight of the tour, a trip to see the majestic Grand Cathedral Cave.
On the return voyage, some time will be spent meandering among the peaceful beauty of the inner islands, where you may see schools of dolphins and other marine life. Along the way, your captain will provide you with informative commentary about the area's history and marine life.
Please note: This tour includes limited walking and is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their way on and off the catamaran with assistance, and have an able-bodied companion. Those who suffer from motion sickness are urged to take precautionary measures. Weather appropriate, layered clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable shoes with a non-slip sole are recommended. Seeing the entrance way to Grand Cathedral Cave cannot be guaranteed due to weather and sea conditions, although every effort will be made. Sightings of marine life are not guaranteed.
