The Poor Knights Islands are spectacular; there is as much to see and do above the water as there is down below. Take command of a kayak, or don mask and snorkel, and find a whole other way to discover the Islands. This very special day-trip, Perfect Day offers the ultimate non-diving Poor Knights experience, with sight-seeing, kayaking, cave explorations, snorkeling, swimming, sea mammal-spotting, snippets of fascinating history and Island facts and great food. The boat is incredibly well fitted-out, with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, upstairs viewing, plenty of facilities and the fabulous ‘fish cam’ feeding live underwater shots right into the boat. Air conditioned comfort and ample shade from the sun, or you can relax and get a tan! The indoor outdoor flow allows for maximum viewing, with two leveled decks to get that better perspective and a great photo!
Arriving about 10.45 in the morning, you will board directly on to our multi-deck luxurious vessel in the heart of Tutukaka. By 11am you will be at sea on a 23 km open ocean trip to the islands, on a fully licensed and surveyed boat with a professional skipper, and friendly crew. There are many hidden harbours to choose from, so you will always be sheltered and comfortable. Whilst at the Poor Knights Islands we take you on a tour to show you their splendour, including a visit right inside the world’s largest sea cave. Enjoy the free tea, coffee and soups, eat the delicious buffet lunch that is included in your fare, paddle in our kayaks around arches and caves. Arrive back at Tutukaka at 4pm, to relax at one of Tutukaka’s several watering holes, or to travel to your next destination.
