You’ll get picked up at 7.45 am at the Paihia Wharf by our sea shuttle who will take you on a smooth cruise to a remote and quiet bay where The Rock has been anchored overnight. After arrival and a quick safety brief we haul anchor and get underway for an exploration of the islands.

Kayaking, snorkelling, gathering fresh sea food, exploring and taking a guided walk across an outer island enjoying stunning vantage points. If conditions allow, we’ll gather mussels from the kelp-covered outer reefs to enjoy on the way home (along with the unique experience of eating sea urchins raw if you’re brave enough).

You will have time to enjoy the remote beaches - perfect for a game of beach cricket or volley ball.

On the homeward cruise, we’ll enjoy lunch, those mussels, freshly steamed, and watch out for the abundant marine and bird life…hopefully we’ll even see dolphins! We arrive back at Paihia wharf at approximately 2pm or 3pm during day light saving.

Think you want more activities or want to stay on board The Rock longer? Then maybe The Rock Overnight Cruise is for you.
