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.
