Parking

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)  Joyces Road adjacent to the Paihia Ex-Servicemens Association (free overnight parking with prior arrangement).  7-10 minutes walk to the wharf.  
(c)  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.  
 

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

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

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
