Day by Day Tour Itinerary

Day 1
Arrive in Bay of Islands

On arrival, please make your own way to your accommodation at the Averill Court Motel (Option to include car hire and to start and finish in Auckland). The seaside town of Paihia is nestled on the foreshore of this National Maritime Park. There are many sightseeing activities and attractions to cater for all interests as well as budgets. There’s something for everyone … whether you’re an adrenaline seeker, nature lover, culture vulture or sun worshipper.

Day 2
Bay of Islands

This morning you will join a Dolphin cruise to Cape Brett and the Hole-in-the-Rock. Enjoy a cruise through the sheltered waters of the Bay of Islands aboard ‘Dolphin Seeker’, a purpose-built dolphin and whale watching catamaran. Cruise past the Cape Brett lighthouse before arriving at the majestic Hole-in-the-Rock. Hold your breath as the skipper navigates you through the narrow space and wonder at the rock walls that tower above you.

Stop at Urupukapuka Island and take time to swim and relax on a sandy beach. If conditions are suitable, you can upgrade your itinerary to include a swim with wild dolphins. This is a fun cruise the whole family will enjoy!

This afternoon is free for some more exploring. Optional activities include sailing, fishing, kayaking, golf, visits to historic sites, cultural experiences, forest walks, 4WD safaris and day trips to Cape Reinga, New Zealand’s northernmost point where you can see the merging of the Tasman Sea and the mighty Pacific Ocean.

We had a good time. Not your problem that it was raining the last 2 days and we had no wet weather gear. Also the cruise did not go to the hole in the rock because the sea was too rough, but the crew were very good and we saw dolphins, so it was quite exciting. The car we got from Thrifty was an upgrade. Nice, but not so nice was the fact that there was no GPS available till 12pm. and we had arranged to pick up the car at 9am. Still the service lady was very apologetic and gave us maps and also a discount on the insurance excess cost which to some extent made up for the annoyance.

Our trip was just great - Fullers simply treated my family so well. This was our first holiday as a family with a small infant, but everyone from the moment we were picked up at our door to the moment we were dropped off were just so helpfull and friendly - everything was well organised.
