This five hour cruise, ‘Discover the Bay’, will see you cruise among the 144 islands with an informative skipper’s commentary. You’ll visit the iconic ‘Hole in the Rock’ and when conditions permit, travel right through it. Over 90% of our trips see marine mammals (dolphins, whales or orcas) and for those few that miss, we offer a lifetime viewing guarantee.

Enjoy an hour and a half at Otehei Bay on Urupukapuka Island.

Don’t miss the chance to absorb Urupukapuka Island’s rich and long history at the Otehei Bay Island Conservation Centre. Also learn about the restorative work of Project Island Song to return native birdlife back to the Bay.
