Itinerary

Day 1
Welcome to Auckland – Bay of Islands

Welcome to Auckland – Bay of Islands

Depart Auckland by coach for the Bay of Islands. On arrival in Paihia 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.

On day 2 you’ll have the day at leisure. Relax by the pool, or perhaps take a coach ride 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. On day 3 visit the Waitangi Treaty Reserve to learn about New Zealand’s early Maori and European history. 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. Your short break concludes the morning of day 4, after breakfast. You’ll be transferred to Auckland Airport to connect with your onward flight (flights anytime).
