4 Day Bay of Islands & Cape Reinga Flightseeing & Cruise

4 Day Bay of Islands & Cape Reinga Flightseeing & Cruise

In the Bay of Islands you can find unbelievable natural beauty, amazing beaches and a host of islands make for an idyllic aquatic playground and ultimate retreat.

Visit the top of New Zealand with a half day tour to Cape Reinga. The initial stage of the tour consists of a flight up to Cape Reinga via Northland’s spectacular harbours, such as the Whangaroa Harbour and the Rangaunu Harbour. We also pass across some beautiful beaches such as Coopers Beach, Doubtless Bay and of course the famous Ninety Mile Beach. From Ninety Mile Beach we then fly inland where we land at our airfield, which is only 20km from the Cape Reinga lighthouse. Once on the ground a comfortable air-conditioned mini-bus will meet the aircraft. It will take you on a 2½ hour tour around the top of New Zealand.

After a 20 minute drive, we reach the Cape Reinga Lighthouse where the Tasman Sea meets the Pacific Ocean. Our local guide will accompany you on your walk to the lighthouse, sharing the myths and legends of this very spiritual area. We then rejoin the vehicle for a short drive to Tapotupotu Bay where we enjoy a freshly baked light refreshment. There is time for a stroll on the beach, and a quick swim if desired, then we move across to the Te Paki quicksand stream with its giant sand dunes; (we have sleds available for those who wish to experience the exhilaration of sliding down the sand dunes and try some “sand surfing”). The return flight to the Bay of Islands includes some of the most spectacular coastal scenery Northland has to offer.

Swimming with dolphins in their world is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Dolphins, whales, fish, sea birds, penguins and other wildlife are frequently encountered in the spectacular marine environment at the Bay of Islands. Join our luxury 20m high speed catamaran, designed specifically for the sea conditions of the Bay of Islands area. Our guides are some of the most experienced in the Bay and will educate and ensure you get the most from your eco-adventure.

This is your unique opportunity to get up close and personal with these beautiful marine mammals. See the abundance of marine mammals and wildlife the Bay of Islands is famous for. Our modern high speed luxury catamaran is purpose built for dolphin and whale watching and offers easy access to the water and hot showers. This is truly a unique opportunity and is especially spectacular in the Bay of Islands.

We fully enjoyed our experience, despite poor weather conditions meant that we had the flight cancelled 10 mins before departure due to bad weather which was very disappointing but fortunately we were able to complete the flight on the day we were supposed to leave due to conditions improving and we had a little flexibility in our departure time. The swimming with Dolphins was good despite not being able to swim with them because they had baby Dolphins, however they put on a good display for us. The only downside was the Copthorne Hotel. This was below standards that we had experienced in New Zealand and is what I would call a budget hotel that needs to be upgraded.
