Get ready for the ultimate adventure of sea, land, and flight with this special ‘island escape’ helicopter and cruise tour with a beach stopover.
If you are looking to experience the best of the Bay of Islands in one day, this is the activity for you! This island escape tour departs from Paihia with a relaxing cruise on a comfortable sea shuttle boat. An informative guide will be with you along the way providing interesting commentary on the islands and passing scenery. You will eventually disembark on Roberton Island where you can enjoy the beach at your leisure. Walk the tracks, swim, snorkel, or just relax!
After about 2 to 3 hours on the island, the sea shuttle will pick you up and transfer you to a custom built helicopter barge in the heart of the islands. Now it’s time to fly! You will depart from here on a 15 minute scenic helicopter ride to the infamous Hole in the Rock and back over the islands before landing in Paihia.
