Experience a unique one night cruise aboard the cruise ship Ipipiri and immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty of the Bay of Islands.
With 144 islands and abundant marine and bird life, the Bay of Islands is one of New Zealand's finest sub-tropical maritime parks – stunning during the day and unforgettable at night.
Learn about the region's historical and cultural significance as you explore the Bay. Ipipiri offers a relaxed environment where you can do as much or as little as you like. Try snorkelling or kayaking in the clear waters, or take a walk along a secluded island beach, before relaxing with a refreshing drink on the top deck as the sun sets behind the sheltered islands of the Bay.
Your experienced crew will find a sheltered cove to moor in overnight. Dine on fresh local produce complimented by New Zealand wines and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere.
Your accommodation is in one of our 30 ocean view cabins. All rooms have private ensuites and uninterrupted sea views so you can watch the sun set or rise from the privacy of your room. In the morning, enjoy a buffet-style cooked and continental breakfast before returning to Paihia.
Nightly cruise-only rates start from $357 per person twin share, for an ocean view cabin. Note: Bar charges not included.
Useful tips: A small overnight bag should be brought on board for passenger convenience. There is no storage for large suitcases. We recommend you bring swimwear, sunscreen, sun hat, comfortable walking shoes, warm clothing, and a camera. Rooms can be configured as either one king bed or two single beds – please let us know your preference when booking.
