Discover the Bay

Discover the Bay – Experience the spectacular scenery in an area rich in culture and history. Encounter diverse wildlife in their natural surroundings. Discover the Bay of Islands with us.

This 4 hour cruise will see you cruise among the 144 islands with an informative skipper’s commentary. You’ll visit to the iconic Hole in the Rock and when conditions permit, travel through it. Over 90% of our trips see marine mammals (dolphins, whales or orcas) and for those few that miss out we offer a lifetime viewing guarantee.

Enjoy the best of Explore hospitality during your 90min lunch break at the stunning Otehei Bay on Urupukapuka Island. We provide a BBQ lunch on both the morning and afternoon departures in summer. 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 bird life back to the Bay.
