School Holiday Special! Bring the whole family for a boat cruise sightseeing around the beautiful Tutukaka Coast, departing from Tutukaka Marina. Look for wildlife and enjoy the stunning scenery on a half day boating tour suitable for adventurers of all ages.
Enjoy the cruise up to Whale Bay with it's idyllic white sand and bush lined beaches along the way, and see the beautiful Coastline from on the water. Calling into secluded Bays that can only be accessed from the water.
Whale and Matapouri Bays are recognised by the Lonely Planet guide as being among the best beaches in New Zealand. The white sand defines the edge of the lush green native bush with mature stands of puriri, pohutukawa and kowhai. This contrasts with the clear blue water of these beautifully calm bays.
Whale Bay was an ideal location for Māori to launch their early whaling missions and gives it the name popularly used today.
