Pick Up Location

The Rock Adventure Cruise leaves from the main wharf in central Paihia, where all Bay of Islands maritime activities are based from. Please be there ten minutes before pick up time and look out for our sign. Our crew will be there to greet you and take you to The Rock on our tender (smaller boat).

Staying in Russell? Just catch the passenger ferry over to Paihia - it runs three times per hour and takes approximately 15 minutes.

Where is the Rock located?

We took a group of 25 international students from a high school on the overnight cruise. This is the second time we have done the overnight cruise, as the first group we took also thoroughly enjoyed it. When you leave Paihia you travel out to one of the Islands to anchor overnight. You get to shoot paint balls at a fake duck they tow behind the boat, go fishing, go night kayaking and swimming. The night kayaking was the students favourite part as we got to see the Bioluminescent Algae which was amazing and a once in a lifetime experience!Nicole

Would do it again without a doubt! I did this on Wednesday and had the best time!Beeb93

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!
