Bay of Islands Kayaking Excursion Reviews

When cruising in New Zealand, a Bay of Islands kayaking excursion is a fun way to experience the South Pacific. Along the way, it's common to encounter dolphins and other sea life. You may even be able to kayak through a waterfall.
Not too difficult for a fit 60 something.
Not too difficult for a fit 60 something. 1 point off since we didn't see any wildlife, except a few cormorants. (Not the companies fault)

Tenders to get off the ship here again and the bay is beautiful. Not a lot to see here. We went straight off on our kayaking adventure which was really worth while. We got to attempt to kayak through a waterfall which resulted in many laughs and not much success for any of the group. Tour operator was friendly and informative. After our kayak we got on one of the free buses to Paihaia which was a sweet little touristy town. There was a market on in the main street and we all bought locally made souvineers. Here you could book boat trips out to the hole in the rock, helicopter rides etc. Very pretty but not a lot there. Nice to visit, but got quite busy with all the cruisers. The Maori cultural centre looked good but at $0 each we hadn't budgeted for it so gave it a miss. Read Less
