Overview
Experience nature is at its best on a 40-minute Bay of Islands cruise followed by a kayak excursion. Paddle past mangrove forests to a wondrous waterfall, with the option to depart in the morning, afternoon or at sunset. If you’d like, opt for a paddleboard instead. You’ll view birdlife and learn the cultural history of the Maori people with commentary by a knowledgeable guide.
What to Expect
The tour will depart from Waitangi Stone Wharf, from here your journey will begin. Enjoy a 40minute cruise along local island coastlines and up beautiful rivers. Sit back, take in the scenery and enjoy the ride.

After the cruise, you will proceed on to the kayaks. Have fun exploring the scenery you just viewed up close as you kayak around freely. Paddle through mangrove forests or photograph a colony of sea birds that nest in trees hanging over the river.

Last, but certainly not least, you will be taken to the waterfall for more kayaking fun. The waterfall drops right into the sea. Enjoy the stronger water safely. Even first timers can safely experience paddling in foaming whitewater and even under the waterfall itself!

Good Thing We Called

If we hadn't called to get directions, we would have never known that they moved the tour up by one hour and we would have missed it entirely. The tour guide, Ben, was really good. The problem was, it was pouring down rain and he...More
