Departure Time

9:00 AM
Begin your tour with a 9am pickup from your Paihia or Kerikeri hotel, and set out to explore the Bay of Islands in the comfort of a private vehicle. Your private tour is custom-made to your preferences and your guide will contact you in advance to discuss your itinerary.

Perhaps spend time exploring the beautiful beaches and lively seaside resorts along the coast; admiring the views over the bay and its islands; or visiting popular beauty spots such as Wharepuke Falls and Haruru Falls. Other options include whale and dolphin watching cruises, or a 1.5-hour hike to Rainbow Falls.

Alternatively, visit the Waitangi Treaty Grounds to learn the story of New Zealand's long Maori and European history; explore historic monuments like the Stone Store and Kemp House; or immerse yourself in Maori culture at Rewa’s Village, a full-scale replica of a pre-European Māori fishing village.

Your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel around 3pm.
