4 Day Spectacular Bay Of Islands
Relax in the beautiful Bay of Islands, discover its marine life and learn about New Zealand history at the Waitangi Treaty Reserve.
First Day Auckland, Bay of Islands
(Flights to arrive day prior.) Depart Auckland by coach for the Bay of Islands. On arrival visit the Waitangi Treaty Reserve to learn about New Zealand's early Maori and European history. In Paihia you'll board the Dolphin Seeker, a purpose-built catamaran, and meet your experienced local skipper for a cruise through the beautiful clear waters. Keep a look out for common and bottlenose dolphins, whales and other marine life as you get up close to the action. Enjoy the views as you cruise past the Cape Brett Lighthouse, before arriving at the majestic Hole in the Rock. You'll be holding your breath as the skipper navigates through the narrow space. Take in the unique sights of Grand Cathedral Cave before heading back into the inner islands of the Bay.
Hotel: Copthorne Resort, Water View
Second Day enjoy Free Time at the Bay of Islands
You'll have the day at leisure. Relax by the pool, or perhaps take a coach ride via Ninety Mile Beach to Cape Reinga, the northern-most point of New Zealand. Tonight, you can choose to dine at one of the local cafés or restaurants on the waterfront.
Third Day go from Bay of Islands to Auckland
Relax or explore on your own this morning. Perhaps spend time in a local café or ride a historic ferry to Russell, the first capital of New Zealand. Later this afternoon you will return to Auckland.
Hotel: The Langham
