Clear blue water, sandy beaches and beautiful islands

No trip to the Bay of Islands would be complete without some time spent in or on the water. With 144 islands, each surrounded by pristine waters, abundant bird and sea life, the Bay of Islands really is the place to get your feet wet!

Your options are many, from parasailingjetskiing or maybe try you luck at fishing.

You can sit back and simply relax and take a cruise on the Bay taking in the wildlife and beautiful scenery.

If diving’s your thing , then we have some world class dive sites.

Most boat tours leave daily from the main Paihia wharf.

There’s nothing more enticing than the sparkling blue ocean on a good day. And every day’s a good day in the Bay.
