Sightseeing in Bay of Islands

- Paihia


Paihia is the perfect place to start off your exploration of the Bay of Islands. Visitors will find a wide range of accommodation options and great dining. You can arrange trips right from the wharf to the outer islands. Some of the favorite attractions are to cruise to the 'hole in the rock' at the tip of Cape Brett, finding dolphins (and even swimming with them) and sea kayak tours.


- Kerikeri


Kerikeri is a town full with rich history and culture. This area was the home ground of the Maori chief Hongi Hika, who terrorised many tribes throughout the North Island in the early 1800s. Yet he was kind to missionaries, allowing Samuel Marsden to establish New Zealand's second mission station here. You will find historic buildings, great art galleries and amazing dining options in this town.
