The Historic Cream Boat Cruise

**Tour will commence from Oct 2022 for the 22/23 summer season**

See it all on the Bay’s most iconic cruise! This full-day experience has something for everyone, from island stops to dolphin watching.

Back in 1927, Albert Fuller acquired a contract to deliver cream and other goods between island farms and the mainland. Visitors began to come along for the ride, and ‘the Cream Trip’ became a must-do activity. Today we still follow the original route, delivering mail and supplies to the islands while we show you the very best of the Bay, from its historical highlights to its most scenic spots. Ninety years on, the Cream Trip cruise is still the best way to see the Bay.

Enjoy an extended island stop at Otehei Bay on Urupukapuka Island to relax and enjoy the bush, beach and birdsong. Take a swim, explore an island walk, eat your lunch and enjoy the views.

Dinner Cruise

*Please note that due to Covid, this experience is not operating over the 2021-2022 summer period. We expect it will resume operating next summer* 

Darryl and his family had a dream 21 years ago, to start their own business showing visitors their backyard – the Bay of Islands, ‘The Winterless North’. Offering travellers food and refreshments is a kiwi tradition, so why not pair it with a relaxing river cruise to see the Haruru Falls up the Waitangi River

Depart from Paihia Wharf and join Darryl and the crew on board the Ratanui, a custom-built river cruising boat, made for gliding through the water of the calm inland waterways. This 2.5 hour cruise will take you along the Waitangi River, where the bird life is abundant.

The friendly crew are a mine of information and love to share the history of the area. Relax in the comfy leather seating with a glass of your favourite drink, and mingle with the other travellers – you never know who you’ll meet.

There is a cash bar for your convenience.

All food is cooked fresh onboard and served straight off the BBQ. Start with Tiger prawns and Green-Lipped mussels accompanied with bread and dips. Then choose from beef sirloin, lamb or steamed fish for your main. There’s even a little kiwi marshmallow specialty to round off your meal.

Get off Road AND on the Track in this awesome self drive package

Drive yourself into unknown territory on the 4WD Bush Safari. Your guide ahead will instruct you through challenging, unique terrain in New Zealand native forest. Then get race ready and feel the G-force intensify as you take on New Zealand’s longest 1.2km outdoor circuit.

The ultimate 4WD adventure that puts you in control. Buckle up and take on an off-road adventure deep into native New Zealand forest. Back in the early 1900s the area Off Road NZ is set on, was used by logging pioneers who logged our native timbers until closing up in the 1970s. The tracks that the pioneers used back then are the same tracks that you will be diving on today. Rugged and remote, the trail is full of unknowns with plenty of thrills along the way.

With instruction from a professional guide, you can tackle terrain made for 4WD adventures. Tight, twisting bends, deep muddy holes, a seven metre-high luge, steep climbs and thrilling descents – this is uncharted territory with challenges that come thick and fast.

Feel the need for speed as you jump into the driver’s seat for an exhilarating Raceline Karting experience. Concentration, skills and a big dose of brave, make the most of the world-class karting track and give it all you’ve got.

Test your limits in a safe and controlled environment, at Rotorua’s International Kartsport Raceway, with top of the line Sodi 390cc 4 stroke karts imported from France. Off Road NZ is the only place in the country where you can race these incredible, state of the art machines on the same track as the professional racers.

Geared up and ready to roll, experience the rush of G-Force as you take on hairpin corners and flowing curves with speeds reaching close to 100 km/hour on the 150-metre straight. Go for a personal best or race your friends or colleagues to beat the clock and cross that finish line.

Why is this Chuffed Worthy?

James from Chuffed has visited Off Road NZ at least 20 times in the last 15 years – with his wife, visiting friends and family, groups of friends….the Go Karting never fails to impress. Part of it’s charm is it’s remote location on a 125 hectare farm 25 minutes drive into the hills from Rotorua.  The fun is addictive, and the competitive spirit against yourself and your friends comes to the fore. So when Chuffed was born – Off Road NZ was one of the first calls James made to see if they wanted to be a partner. And lucky for everyone they said yes.
