Visit the #1 snorkelling spot here in the Bay of Islands on your epic snorkelling trip, we will see and interact with an abundance of sealife and explore a big hidden archway in a well-established Rahui in Maunganui Bay (No take area). I have personally watched the marine life grow and thrive since the Rahui came into place in 2010 and it is definitely the top spot! There is nothing like swimming in a huge aquarium where the fish love that you are there!!
The Bay of Islands Has some144 outstanding beautiful islands with emerald coloured waters off the Eastern coast of Northland, New Zealand. Our snorkelling trips cruise pass many of these to get out to our snorkelling spots so we stop giving you commentary of this historic place
Our main area for snorkelling is Deep Water Cove (Maunganui Bay) on the Cape Brett Peninsula, which is very well known for its clarity of water – even up to 20 metres at times. Many of the local tour boats don’t have the required power or range to explore these waters, but our vessel Pelorus Belle will get us there easily in an enjoyable 30-minute journey. Take lots of photos, spot some awesome bird life, or just relax in the sunshine during your comfortable passage through the stunning scenery.
As owner operator who has worked out here for over 25 years I love it with a passion so I am happy to share a few of my amazing experiences along the way and with a genuine care for the environment we have very little waste on our trip. Learn about the history and geology of the Islands – and with the years of knowledge of all marine, bird and fish life of the area, you’ll get the best out of your trip.
With small numbers (max. 12) we will give you a personalized trip where you’ll make friends and share memories of a life time. So escape the masses and come join us snorkelling in the Bay of Islands. With super easy Picks up in Paihia and Russell.
