Relax and take in the sights with a complimentary tea or coffee as we cruise past some of the 144 islands that make up the Bay of Islands. We select a bay that is sheltered from the prevailing weather conditions and drop anchor. From here we will prepare your kiwi BBQ lunch onboard while you step ashore to explore. If you are feeling adventurous, you may want to hike to the nearest viewpoint, or we have snorkelling gear and paddleboards available for your use. If you simply want to relax, we have plenty of lounging areas onboard for you to take full advantage of or you may want to pick a quiet spot on the beach. Finally, we heave the anchor and sail back to Paihia.
