Relaxing Russell Lunch Cruise


Join the owner Darryl and his friendly crew on this calm water cruise to explore some of the historic sites in the beautiful Bay of Islands. Departing from Waitangi, you will travel along the coast towards Opua before heading over to Okiato passing Omata estate vineyard and Kororareka oyster farms along the way. Sit back and relax while lunch is served and the cruise turns towards historic Russell. Once known as the “Hell Hole of the Pacific,” by whalers, traders, and sealers, Russell was the original port in the North Island. Today, Russell is a picturesque waterfront village full of old homesteads, historic churches, and wooden cottages. You will have the option to disembark in Russell and explore the township, or travel back to your departure wharf. Your return ferry ticket to Paihia is included.
