The Rock Adventure Day Cruise

1. The Rock Adventure Day Cruise

You’ll get picked up at 8.15 am at the Paihia Wharf by sea shuttle which will take you on a smooth cruise to a remote and quiet bay where The Rock has been anchored overnight. After arrival and a quick safety brief haul anchor and get underway for an exploration of the islands. Go Kayaking, snorkelling, gathering fresh sea food, explore WWII remains, trek across islands enjoying stunning vantage points, and visit ancient Maori fortifications. If conditions allow, gather mussels from the kelp-covered outer reefs to enjoy on the way home (along with the unique experience of eating sea urchins raw if you’re brave enough). You will have time to enjoy the remote beaches - perfect for a game of beach cricket or volley ball. On the homeward cruise, enjoy those mussels, freshly steamed, and watch out for the abundant marine and bird life…hopefully you’ll even see dolphins! Arrive back at Paihia wharf at approximately 3 pm. Think you want more activities or want to stay on board The Rock longer? Then maybe The Rock Overnight Cruise is for you. Perhaps your time is a bit more limited but you still fancy sleeping aboard a boat? Then go on the Rock Bed & Breakfast Overnight Cruise.

What people are saying about Paihia

Fantastic day, can't fault it.

Staff were friendly and very knowledgeable about the area food was good. Enjoyed snorkeling, kayaking and exploring one of the islands. To top it all, a pod of about a dozen dolphins, including 2 babies joined us for about 15/20 mins on the way home!

Relaxing day on a boat

The staff are friendly and always ensures the safety of the group. It will be good if we could have stayed longer on the island. Overall it was a great trip.

Impossible not to have fun on board The Rock. Great family fun. Lots of games and activities. Best boat trip available. Can’t recommend it enough.
