great food, kayaking and relaxing on the large comfortable launch, this marine reserve trip cannot be beaten.
On this tour you will be picked up from you hotel before we head north to the stunning Tutukaka coast. A long the way you will be treated to amazing views of New Zealand's east coast beaches, mountains and forests, a trip in its own, before arriving at the Tutukaka Marina where your real journey will begin.
Here you will board a large comfortable launch called Perfect Day! With plenty of indoor and outdoor space and all the equipment and comforts you need this boat is just one of the reasons this trip lives up to the boats name. Once on board you will head out 23 km on an open ocean trip to the islands encountering any number of marine life on the way.
Once at the island there are many hidden harbours to choose from, so you will always be sheltered and comfortable. Your hosts will take you on a tour to show you the splendour of these islands including a visit right inside the world’s largest sea cave. After the tour you can enjoy snorkelling or kayaking around arches and caves to see this world class marine icon and all the marine life it is home to.
After some exploring I’m sure you are ready for the delicious complimentary buffet lunch, tea and coffee before maybe relaxing some more or sunbathing on the boat.
Finally, the ocean part of your trip has come to an end and it's time to head back to shore.
Once on shore your friendly guide will take you to your local accommodation or return you back to Auckland with a few surprise stops on the way to complete your Perfect Day.
