The Rock Overnight Cruise
For an activity-packed, nature-filled experience on the water, it doesn’t get better than this! Join us on the Rock, New Zealand’s biggest houseboat, for a 22-hour overnight cruise in the Bay of Islands. She offers a warm, homely and stable environment and, with a capacity for 36, she’s big enough for groups but intimate enough for the independent traveller to make new friends.
Our relaxed pace gives you time to take in all the scenery and try plenty of activities on the way. As well as exploring one of the larger of the Bay’s 144 islands on foot, you’ll have time to gather fresh seafood for dinner, to kayak the reefs, snorkel the pristine waters, take part in beach cricket and try some night-swimming.
Alternatively you can just sit back and enjoy the abundance of nature viewed from the Rock’s observation decks and enjoy a drink in the glorious sunset.
