The Rock | Bay of Islads Adventure Cruise


Everything you need to know when coming on board The Rock!

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.

We do not have parking available but here are a few options for local parking:

(a) Pay and display carpark in Williams Road - 4 or 5 minutes walk to the wharf
(b) There is also overnight parking available at the Bay of Islands Holiday Apartments and Campervan Park. Approximately 15-20 minutes walk back to Paihia wharf.

The boat is fully equipped, comfortable and very, very stable (New Zealand’s largest houseboat). However, she is still a boat.

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.

Nibbles and snacks. Towel. Swimwear. Sunscreen. Warm jacket. Camera. Bring just an overnight bag. Light footwear or sandals are fine. Cash or card (we have EFTPOS)

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