Itinerary

Travel north out of the city, over the Auckland Harbour Bridge and into the Northland region to the Bay of Islands. En route (if time permits), stop at the Parry Kauri Park to view a magnificent stand of native New Zealand Kauri trees.

Upon arrival at the Bay of Islands, your first stop will be the historic Waitangi Treaty Grounds, where in 1840 Māori and British representatives signed a treaty of understanding. During your guided tour you'll also see a magnificently carved marae (Māori meeting house) and waka (large war canoe).

After your Waitangi Treaty Grounds tour, return to the seaside town of Paihia by coach and board a high-speed catamaran for a cruise via the Bay of Islands to the famous Hole in the Rock - a tall rocky island with a hole large enough to sail a boat through (subject to weather conditions).

The Bay of Islands is also rich in marine life - dolphins, whales and flocks of sea birds diving into huge schools of fish are common sights during this trip. A picnic-style lunch will be served on the boat as you listen to an informative commentary detailing the history of the many islands of the Bay.

Re-board your luxury coach for the trip back to Auckland, arriving at approximately 8:00pm.
