  • Bay of Islands: Island Hopper Day Sailing Cruise from Paihia

    1. Bay of Islands: Island Hopper Day Sailing Cruise from Paihia

    Embark on a magical day sailing adventure in the Bay of Islands. Experience the Kiwi barefoot culture for yourself as you step straight from Paihia's beachfront onto a modern catamaran.  Set sail through the bay's 144 islands to a remote island stopover aboard Kopiko, a 33-foot performance catamaran built for speed, comfort, and style. Lend the friendly crew a hand with sailing the boat, or spread out with plenty of deck space where you can grab a bean bag and chalk up some leisure time. Discover a wealth of wildlife from seabirds, stingrays, seals, penguins, to dolphins.  Arrive in a stunning bay, where you'll anchor close to the beach. Step off onto the island and enjoy a delicious packed lunch at a stunning picnic spot of your choice. Enjoy short walking trails, picturesque views, snorkeling, paddleboarding, swimming, or digging your toes into the sand. After your island adventures,...

    Amazing value for money. We got 4 hours sailing, 2 hours to snorkel / paddle board / take an island walk, morning tea / lunch / and an afternoon drink. The hosts are lovely, safe, and organised. Skip the big tour boats and do something different - like this. We will go again when next in the bay of islands.

Four of us (2 bikes) met Mark and Daz at the isite centre and what an exhilarating experience from start to finish. It started raining shortly after we started but only lasted a few minutes but our clothes dried out within minutes thank goodness. We had a great tour around Paihia and district including the Waitangi treaty grounds. The guys were great and we could hear everything they spoke about very clearly.

Great activity to end a holiday! Thank you for the lovely experience!

It was bloody great loved every second of it such a thrill x

It was good fun for my family with two young children

My partner was very happy with his ride on the trike
