Trip Overview

See all the highlights along the coast, from granite outcrops, golden sands and lush forest. Take in Split Apple Rock, Tonga Island Marine Reserve and Adele Island Wildlife Reserve. View sea birds and seals, with a chance to spot little blue penguins.

Order your barbecue the night before and our crew will head to the most sheltered cove to light the grill and cook up your classic Kiwi barbecue lunch, enjoyed on board. After lunch, relax with a comfortable Vista Cruise back to Kaiteriteri.

If you would like some time ashore, book the Extended Barbecue Cruise option, available during High Season (Oct to April).
