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