Enjoy a scenic one hour cruise on the Tauranga Harbour with the iconic Kewpie cruises, along with a supreme all day pass to visit Waimarino water & adventure park!

Experience a full day at the ultimate water and adventure park, Waimarino. Your supreme pass gives you full access to all activities. Have fun on the blob, rock climbing, kayaking, playing beach volleyball, challenging yourself on the low ropes course and so much more. The park is situated on the banks of the beautiful Wairoa River where you can enjoy any down time between activities under the palm trees.


Board a cruise from Pilot Bay in Mt Maunganui to get out on the idyllic Tauranga Harbour.

Launched in 1953 as one of Fullers first charter boats doing the world famous ‘cream trip’  in Bay of islands. The iconic KEWPIE has a massive history in NZ waters.

On this experience, you’ll cruise past the Statue of Tangaroa, a diversity of landscapes from untouched white sandy beaches, lush green forests, islands and small village settlements, contrasted by the massive highly developed port infrastructure.

Keep your eyes peeled as it’s not uncommon to spot seasonal wildlife on your cruise like blue penguins, sea birds, NZ fur seals and even Dolphin & Orca from time to time!

Stay on board or choose to hop off at Matakana Island. You are picked up on the same day at no extra cost. Spend an hour or a day on this beautiful island. This is an idyllic beach visit. Beautiful beach walks, fishing, swimming and picnics are popular.

We've combined two of Tauranga's most iconic on water experiences!
