Discover the stunning marine playground and scenic beauty of the region during your 4-hour cruise as you make your way through the pristine islands towards the Cape Brett Peninsula and its historic lighthouse and (conditions permitting) through the majestic Hole in the Rock. Marvel at the bottlenose dolphins and a host of other marine and wildlife en route in the hands of your knowledgeable skipper.
Enjoy a 3-hour inspiring and cultural experience at the birthplace of New Zealand at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds. Enjoy an informative tour with your local Maori guide; a high-energy Maori cultural performance; additionally, ample time to explore Waitangi’s heritage buildings, such as the Treaty House (home to the first British resident) and Te Whare Runanga (Carved Meeting House). Watch live demonstrations in the Carving Studio, take photos beside the world’s largest ceremonial war canoe. Visit the Museum of Waitangi which holds a stunning collection of taonga (treasured objects) that bring to life the history of Waitangi and the Treaty of Waitangi, the founding document of New Zealand.
