Kayaking adventure from the ocean shore through the river system to, and under, Haruru Falls. Fair standard of fitness required.
Duration: 4 hours
Full day exploring in the Bay. First, you’re off by launch ‘hunting’ for dolphins and then, after a relaxing sojourn with lunch on an island, you’re ‘blasting’ for the afternoon on ‘The Edge’ – a huge catamaran under full sail.
Duration: Full Day
Horse riding for the beginner or the experienced in the beautiful Bay of Islands and surrounds.
