Travel in style and comfort aboard our Vista Cruise into Tonga Island Marine Reserve. Pause to view the antics at Tonga Island Seal Colony then continue to Tōtaranui along the remote northern beaches where nikau palms and native rata (the South Island Christmas tree) feature in the rainforest.

From Tōtaranui, return to historic Tonga Quarry Beach to enjoy a walk over a forested saddle and along the waterfall trail around the stunning Bark Bay Inlet, crossing the spectacular suspension bridge beside Bark Bay Falls.

Take some extra time to relax on the golden sands at Bark Bay before you continue on to picturesque Medlands Beach for your pickup to return to Kaiteriteri, pausing to view seals on Adele Island.
