Choose from the Island Hopper cruise or the Sundowner evening cruise.
Island Hopper Cruise
6-hour day cruise: depart at 10 am and return at 4 pm.
Spend a day with the Barefoot Sailing Adventures crew as you sail to a beautiful wildlife sanctuary island.
This cruise is designed to suit the active adventurer. Enjoy water activities such as snorkelling and paddleboarding, and explore hiking trails in the native bush (perfect for bird lovers).
Or, if relaxing is more your scene, there’s plenty of deck space to spread out and relax.
Regardless of what you choose, you’ll enjoy taking in the sights and sounds of the local wildlife, including seabirds such as the Australasian gannet and blue penguins. Keep your eyes peeled for marine life below too, like stingrays and the occasional hammerhead shark. And of course, there’s a chance that you might see some dolphins or orcas too!
This really is a wonderful way to see the Bay of Islands at its very best.
Sundowner Evening Cruise
2-hour evening cruise: depart at 5 pm and return at 7 pm, December to March inclusive.
There’s nothing quite like an evening cruise in the Bay of Islands to say haere mai (goodbye) to a beautiful day.
Sail the inner area of the Bay of Islands, making the most of the beautiful sea breeze on this relaxing scenic evening cruise.
This is the perfect start to a night out with friends and family, a romantic getaway, or just the perfect way to end the day in this unique part of the world.
