3-day Bay of Islands

This 3-day trip to the Bay of Islands has everything a dream trip should! Swim in crystal clear seas and lakes; go hiking and experience some of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world; boogie-board down sand dunes in Hokianga. Day 1 starts in Auckland, from where we head out to Paihia to see the Kauri trees. We spend the night close to the beach. On day two we set off for the Bay of Islands, which is a collection of over 100 islands! We see the beautiful wildlife from the boat and if you are lucky a dolphin or 3 might show up! In the evening you’ll try and enjoy the traditional Maori version of the classic fish n chips. On the last day, we’ll boogie board down sand dunes, swim in crystal clear waters and lounge on white sand beaches. It’s going to be amazing! Join us!
