Step on board this modern, well-appointed vessel and immerse yourself in the breathtaking beauty of the Bay of Islands. Ipipiri offers a unique overnight cruise experience that showcases the beautiful natural surrounds and fascinating history of this region, the birthplace of New Zealand.

Savour a freshly-baked muffin as your Bay of Islands cruise begins. Go snorkelling or kayaking in crystal clear waters, or take a walk along a secluded island beach, before enjoying a refreshing drink on the top deck as the sun sets behind the sheltered islands of the Bay.

Dine on fresh local produce complimented by New Zealand wines and anchor in a secluded cove for the evening. Retire to your ocean view cabin for a peaceful night’s sleep, and wake to a buffet-style cooked and continental breakfast before returning to port.
