Here at Bay Of Islands Water Taxis, our ‘Dive Ops’ day trip will take you to Roberton Island on one of our scheduled trips, and leave you there until you’re ready to catch another scheduled trip back to Paihia or Russell.
Roberton Island is the perfect day trip for couples or the whole family. We’ll provide the snorkelling gear and the transport – easy! (If you are looking for some tips on diving in the Bay of Islands then read our guide here.)
There are no facilities on the island; just natural beauty, short walks, a fantastic lookout, great beaches and exceptional snorkelling for all levels of ability. So you will need to organise food for the day, warm clothes just in case, and any other supplies.
Roberton Island (Motoarohia) is the jewel in the Bay of Islands. It’s just a short boat trip from Paihia or Russell.
There are options to spend more time at Roberton Island if you choose.
This trip runs from the second week of December until the end of March. And note that it is weather dependent (for safety reasons, we don’t want you to take the trip unless it is just right).
