The Rock day cruise offers snorkeling, kayaking, trolling for fish, island exploring and lunch. Both overnight options included accommodation, dinner and breakfast. The classic overnight and day cruises serve a packed lunch. 

There is a wide range of activities on offer, from fishing to kayaking, night swimming to nature watching. You'll have plenty of time to enjoy every aspect of the cruise.

The Rock NZ classic overnight and B&B cruise trips offer a delicious buffet-style barbecue in the evening and a yummy nutritious breakfast from 8am. 

We depart from Paihia, the gateway to the beautiful Bay of Islands. You can find out more about the region and what you can expect to see on our cruise.

The boat is fully equipped, comfortable and very, very stable (New Zealand’s largest houseboat). However, she is still a boat so we use our resources (electricity and water) with care.

I went on The Rock with friends from school and we had a great 24 hours! There were tons of fun things to do on the boat from playing pool, fishing, and even night kayaking! The captain and crew were very knowledgeable about the Bay of Islands and very friendly! It felt like I was hanging out with friends instead of the crew. I would 100% recommend this to anyone who wants to see the Bay of Islands. Visited May 2016TSanders904

If you're considering it - just book it now. We had even more fun than we expected and we expected a lot. Great team, great boat, a great adventure. We've come home feeling like we had a real holiday after just 22 hours on the boat. It felt like a week in the best possible way. Thanks guys - you truly do rock!

Rock the Boat NZ! This overnight trip is great fun and well worth doing, particularly if travelling in a large group.Charlie G

The Rock was one of the first things I had the pleasure of experiencing when I moved to Paihia in January and I have been raving about it ever since!Charlotte
