Day 1
Meet at Paihia Wharf at 4PM. After settling in your cabin, we start cruising through the Bay of Islands. Buy a drink from the on-board bar (optional) and go target shooting. When dusk arrives, we anchor in a sheltered bay and you'll have the option to do some fishing. After dinner and sunset, we'll go night kayaking among phosphorescence and lie back for a star-gazing session. Wrap up the evening with a night swim or a drink by the fire.

Day 2
Wake up for sunrise at sea, and enjoy breakfast before we head off for a full day of exploration! We will cruise to a snorkelling spot and get up and close to snappers, stingrays, and many other marine life. Afterwards, we will travel to an island and go kayaking, paddleboarding, and trekking to a viewpoint. Enjoy learning about the local birdlife, flora & fauna, and stories of the Bay of Islands. Hop back on the boat for a lunch and cruise back to Paihia Wharf by 3PM.
