Overview

Explore the Bay of Islands from the seat of a 350 Chev Trike for a fun-filled and memorable experience. You can choose from three different routes that include some of the area’s must-see sights, or combine them all for a longer trip. Your driver will keep you safe and give you local insights into the Paihia area. This tour is wheelchair accessible, so anyone can join.

What to Expect

You will be picked up at the Maritime Building in Paihia, look for the checkered flag.

Tour Option 1: Paihia to Haruru Falls and then onto Waitangi and the top of Mt Bledisloe where you can get photos in the driver’s seat with the scenic Bay of Islands in the background. Duration is 30-minutes

Tour Option 2: Paihia to Opua (a quaint little seaside village and marina). Here you will completely appreciate the power of the big V8 with twists and turns but still very safe. You will also be able to get photos in the driver’s seat with majestic Opua in the background. Duration is 30-minutes.

Tour Option 3: This is a combination of tours 1 and 2 with a couple of little extra thrills thrown in for the extreme thrill-seeker. Duration is 60-minutes.

After your tour you will be taken back to the Maritime Building in Paihia.
