About the Bay Of Islands

A subtropical paradise in the treasured north of New Zealand.

It is well-known that the Bay of Islands boasts some of the country’s most spectacular scenery. What is less known is that of the 144 islands, very few can be accessed (or even seen) if you stay on land. To explore, you have to take to the water. 

That’s why The Rock Adventure Cruise is so special, because it gives you a long, lingering look at many of the area’s islands as you cruise - plus the opportunity to play beach games or go for a gentle walk up to a vantage point.

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

I place I fell in love with NZ. The most amazing thing I did on my month trip to New Zealand.TheJills, USA

This was definitely the highlight of my trip in NZ! I absolutely loved the cruise and still talk about it to everyone as the highlight of my trip! So many fun activities! Fishing, night time kayaking, snorkelling and exploring an island plus many more! It was a very unique experience with friendly and passionate crew who instantly shared their passion and love for their time on the cruise! Amazing experience that really brings people together through travel :)Lara M

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