Full description
Glide past some 144 islands out to the remote Cape Brett Peninsula on a Bay of Islands day cruise. Board your luxury vessel, the Te Maki, and join your skipper as you set out on the original route used to deliver milk, post, and other supplies to the people who live in the remote Bay of Islands, the Cream Trip.

See Cape Brett Lighthouse, Black Rocks, and the famous Hole in the Rock. Weather and ocean conditions permitting, your skipper will expertly guide your vessel through the tight space of the wave-carved arch. Keep your eyes peeled for dolphins and whales as your crew provide entertaining commentary.

If you are feeling brave you can try boom netting. Make a stop at a secluded island where you can enjoy a relaxing swim while admiring the natural beauty surrounding you. If you are looking for a unique Bay of Islands cruise, the Cream Trip is sure to deliver.
