We depart from Albert Park on Wellesley St next to the Art Gallery in Auckland. Please don’t be late as other people will have to wait for you and we will have less time for the activities during the day. On the way to Paihia we will stop at Whangarei Falls.
After breakfast we depart for Cape Reinga, the most northern point of NZ. On the way we will make stops at 90 mile beach, Te Paki Sand Dunes for sand surfing, the Kauri Kingdom (for arts and souvenirs) and the famous lighthouse in Cape Reinga. At evening we return to our accommodation in Paihia.
Today will be the day for all the optional activities in the Bay of Islands which includes: Sailing – come and sail on one of the great sailing boats ($100/6hrs trip), Swim with the dolphins – get as close as you can to these beautiful animals ($117); Do a boat cruise to the Hole in the Rock ($105), go parasailing ($ 85), or ride a jet ski (from $160). You can also enjoy some free time in the town of Paihia or take the ferry to Russell, NZ’s first capital.
After breakfast, we depart from our accommodation and travel to Hokianga Harbour on the West Coast of Northland. There we will check New Zealand’s biggest and oldest Kauri Trees, Soak in the great scenery, and also visit the crystal clear Kai Iwi Lake. We then return to Auckland and drop you off by Britomart.
