Day 1

Depart Paihia

Depart from Paihia at 5pm, grab a drink and enjoy a 2-3 hourr cruise out to the islands. Give the target shooting a go as you cruise. Once on anchor in a sheltered bay there is time for a spot of dusk fishing. A healthy snapper baked on the barbecue is a welcome addition to an already delicious buffet dinner (subject to guest's fishing ability, of course!).

Later you can choose to go night kayaking to marvel in the phosphorescence (some call it "fairy dust") and lie back for a star-gazing session - your guide will point out the major constellations, planets and galaxies. If you're still up for action, you can jump in the sea for a night swim before settling in for a drink by the fire.

Day 2

Arrive Paihia

Arrive Paihia. Sunrise at sea is spectacular -- you can watch it from your bed if you're not an early bird. The breakfast bell goes at 8am. Enjoy a traditional kiwi breakfast and then haul anchor and get underway for an exploration of the islands. If you're up early enough, you might even get a chance for a quick wake-up swim with the crew.

Enjoy Kayaking, snorkeling, gathering fresh sea food, exploring WWII remains, trekking across islands enjoying stunning vantage points and visiting ancient Maori fortifications. If conditions allow, we'll 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 and a packed lunch is supplied.

On the homeward cruise, we'll enjoy those mussels, freshly steamed, and watch out for the abundant marine and bird life...hopefully we'll even see dolphins! Arrive back at Paihia wharf at approximately 3pm.
