Shared Bunk Gift Card
- Location: Paihia, Bay of Islands
- Product code: PL02VG
Discover the Bay of Islands with our Overnight Cruise experience - its a unique adventure, with a backdrop to die for. What could you want to create lifelong memories here in New Zealand.
START: 5:00 PM, END: UP TO YOU!
Depart Paihia wharf at 5pm, grab a drink and enjoy a 2-3hr cruise from the inner harbour out to the islands. Give the target shooting a go as we cruise. Once on anchor in a sheltered bay we’ll do a spot of dusk fishing. A healthy snapper baked or smoked is a welcome addition to an already delicious dinner (subject to guest’s fishing ability, of course!).
Later you can choose to go night kayaking to marvel in the phosphorescence (some call it “fairy dust”) and lie back for a star-gazing session - your guide will point out the major constellations, planets and galaxies. If you’re still up for action, you can jump in the sea for a night swim before settling in for a drink by the fire.
START: 8:00 AM, END: 3:00 PM
Sunrise at sea is spectacular – you can watch it from your bed if you’re not an early bird! The breakfast bell goes at 8am. We serve a traditional kiwi breakfast and then haul anchor and get underway for an exploration of the islands. If you’re up early enough, you might even get a chance for a quick wake-up swim with the crew.
Kayaking, snorkeling, paddle boarding, gathering fresh sea food, trekking across islands 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.
