What to Expect
Travel reference:

Follow the original Cream Trip route to explore the Bay of Islands on this relaxed day-long cruise.

The Cream Trip is named after the delivery route for mail and supplies to island residents. Retrace this historic route as you take in stunning views of the Bay of Islands on the new vessel, "Te Maki". On arrival at Cape Brett Lighthouse, the farthest post of the original Cream Trip, you will be taken through the stunning Hole in the Rock at Motukokako Island. You'll also see the impressive Black Rocks and Marsden Cross, where the first Christian sermon in New Zealand was held in 1814.

See dolphins in their natural environment and try boom-netting, hanging on to the net as you glide through the water. Then spend some time at Otehei Bay on Urupukapuka Island where you can relax on the beach, head up to the viewing point for a breathtaking outlook, or grab a snack at the island's cafe. Ninety years on, the Cream Trip cruise is still the best way to see the Bay.
