Activity description

Discover the birthplace of New Zealand as we know it on this jetski tour in the Bay of Islands.

Celebrating the European & Maori bond laid down in the Bay of Islands, the Waitangi treaty grounds are considered one of New Zealand’s most important historical landmarks. Explore the waters once sailed by Captain Cook and discover a landscape rich in local tradition on this jetski tour to Moturoa Island.

This activity takes place from Paihia and travels to the Bay of Islands. A three-hour drive or 35-minute flight north of Auckland, it encompasses 144 islands between Cape Brett and the Purerua Peninsula. This tour visits Moturoa Island and the Waitangi treaty grounds – New Zealand’s most important historic site.

Meet your guide at the activity base in Paihia for this guided jet ski tour to Moturoa Island. The perfect adventure for the curious at heart, this 30-minute excursion in the Bay of Islands is run & organised by a Northland local, offering a personalised and unique trip along the coast of New Zealand’s most important historic site. A self-drive option that allows you and one passenger the chance to explore the coastline at your own pace, riding through the Bay of Islands on a jetski offers access to parts of the peninsular rarely visited and almost impossible to reach by larger forms of transport. After a short safety briefing and demo, head out into the Kerikeri Inlet – following your guide towards the Waitangi treaty grounds, learning more about the protected site and the accord that lead to New Zealand as we know it. Enjoying the landmark from the shoreline, cruise up to the remote sandy bays of Motura Island – looking out for pods of dolphins playing on the horizon before you head back to Pahia where your adventure will end.

This tour of Cook’s Cove follows a 30-minute itinerary on two-seater jet skis – passengers from 8 years old are permitted. A reasonable level of fitness is required, as some weather conditions can make handling more physically demanding.
