When your cruise ship docks in Pahia, meet your private guide at the cruise terminal or your Pahia hotel at 9am or 2pm, and take a seat in your vehicle. Then, head out along the coastline to begin your half-day tour.
Discover golden beaches, secluded coves, tranquil harbors, and dramatic shorelines, and listen as your private guide sheds light on the region’s colorful history. Along the way, visit the Waitangi Treaty Grounds and learn of the accord struck between Maori natives and European settlers.
Spin through Kerikeri and Russell, and watch the waves for sightings of dolphins and whales. As you explore, take in top Bay of Islands attractions including Haruru Falls, Kemp House, Rainbow Falls, Rewa‘s Village, the Stone Store, St. James’ Anglican Church, and Wharepuke Falls.
Stop off along the way to sample fresh local produce, seafood, gourmet goods, and award winning wines (own expense), then return in comfort to the port or your Pahia hotel to conclude your private half-day tour.
