Explore the Bay of Islands with NZ Shore Excursions

The Bay of Islands is the birthplace of New Zealand – it has a stunning subtropical coastline and thick dense native forest – including the home of Tane Mahuta – New Zealand’s biggest kauri tree.

The Bay of Islands is made up of 144 islands – including the famous Hole in the Rock; you’ll find spectacular swimming beaches, hidden bays and plenty of water activities including diving, snorkelling and big game fishing.

The founding document of New Zealand – the Treaty of Waitangi – was signed in the Bay of Islands and other historic towns, such as Russell and Hokianga, provide an immense history to explore.
