The Bay of Islands Walking Weekend
Moturua Island Captain Cook Connection - Walk 7
Sailing out to the islands in a roomy comfortable yacht, experience the peacefulness of arriving at Cook’s landing places just how he did – with the wind in his sails and no noisy engines or petrol fumes! A perfect way to travel to your walks in the Bay of Islands.
As you set sail there is more talking than walking before you disembark to visit the site of early interaction between Maori and Europeans. Before heading back on board to Moturua Island, where
you walk the ultimate island loop track. Crossing ridges, the track descends to four very different beaches, ranging from soft sand to pebble and stone. As you explore the islands your guide will regal you with stories of the rich history at each of the bays. Moturua Island has brought the birdsong back to life and you can often see kiwi footprints on the sand as you walk.
This day trip is truly entertaining with its stories and majestic in its beauty. A full day with some of the best the Bay has to offer.
