All tour times are based on Shore time (i.e. local time, - not ship time) When does my tour start? - This tour has a set start time at 9:00 am. Tour Operates: When Cruise Ship is in Port. (Not suitable for Embarkation/Disembarkation Days)

A small group tour with up to a maximum of 19 passengers, of the Bay of Islands, often referred to as “the birthplace of New Zealand”, due to the past events that took place there. These historical events led to the shaping of our nation. The tour commences at 9.00 from the Waitangi Wharf where the cruise ships tenders bring you to shore. First stop is at the Kawiti Glowworm Caves where an hour long guided tour will allow you to experience this magical glowworm experience.

From Kawiti the tour moves onto Kawakawa, also known as “Train Town” as the Bay of Islands Vintage Railway run down the middle of its main street, from there it is thenonto Puketi Forest, a 15,000 hectare forest, containing magnificient stands of kauri and a rich ecological diversity.

The next stop is Kerikeri is also known for its successful horticulture, niche food products, fabulous choc- olates, boutique vineyards, art galleries and crafts; a visit to Makana Chocolates has been arranged where you can watch the making of chocolates, taste a few samples and, of course, shop for some delicious treats. We will stop to see the “The Stone Store” New Zealand’s oldest building and the adjacent “Kemp House”.

Heading back to Paihia a stop will be made at the Haruru Falls, a breathtaking waterfall in a horseshoe shape - very rare and quite spectacular. Departing the Haruru Falls the final stop is at the Waitangi Look Out Loop which provides stunning views over Waitangi and the Bay of Islands. The tour will either return you to the tenders in Waitangi or drop you in the township of Paihia should you wish to explore further on foot, before catching one of the shuttles back to the tenders.
