About the Experience

Experience a new side to the sea this summer and snap up this picturesque treat from Gulf Eco Adventures today! Explore some of New Zealand's best-kept secrets with this incredible seafaring package! Embark on an epic voyage with skipper Kurt Salmond, across Auckland's stunning Hauraki Gulf to see some of the most pristine and beautiful Islands in the world. You'll be travelling aboard the Eco Warrior, an 11-meter aluminium launch capable of speeds up to 32 knots and she will get you out to your gorgeous destinations quickly and comfortably. This 9 hour boat trip includes all water-based activities, including snorkelling, kayaking and paddle boarding. Most of the islands are uninhabited nature reserves, with great bird and marine life, crystal clear waters, and stunning scenery. The island destination of the day will be determined by where the best conditions are on that particular day, but will be either: Great Barrier Island, the Hen & Chicken Islands, or the Mokohinau Islands. Travel time to each of these islands is the same, approximately 2 hours, during which time there are great opportunities for dolphin and whale spotting, sea birds, and fantastic views of the outer Hauraki Gulf. Once you arrive, you'll be taken to the best snorkelling and paddle boarding spots. This is an action-packed day, taking you to 2-3 different snorkelling locations with sightseeing cruising in between, a sheltered bay for lunch and plenty of time to kayak, paddle board, or just relax and admire serenity. Exploring stunning rock formations, caves and steep cliffs, with excellent wildlife viewing opportunities!
