Pass By: Fullers GreatSights Bay of Islands Day Tours, The Maritime Building 69 Marsden Road Paihia Waterfront, Paihia 1045 New Zealand

Main Departure Point and Office, In 1927, Albert Ernest Fuller acquired a delivery route around the Bay of Islands known as the Cream Trip. Locals and visitors began to come along for the ride, and tourism in the Bay of Islands was born.

Today we still follow the original Cream Trip route, delivering mail and supplies to island residents and showing you the best of the Bay on a relaxed day-long cruise. This is the perfect cruise for nature lovers, and the most extensive historical cruise offered in the Bay of Island

Stop At: Paihia Harbour, Paihia New Zealand

See the Paihia and Russell Harbours and Waterfront

Duration: 20 minutes

Pass By: Cape Brett Lighthouse, Rawhiti 0184, New Zealand

Enjoy stunning views of the islands as we travel out through the islands on our new vessel Te Maki, making deliveries on our way. On arrival at Cape Brett Lighthouse, the farthest post of the original Cream Trip, we take you through the stunning Hole in the Rock at Motukokako Island. You’ll also see the impressive Black Rocks and Marsden Cross, where the first Christian sermon in New Zealand was held in 1814. See dolphins in their natural environment – it’s a life-changing experience! Alternatively try boom-netting, hanging on to the net as we glide through the water.

Stop At: Otehei Bay, Urupukapuka Island, Bay of Islands 0200, New Zealand

Spend some time at Otehei Bay on Urupukapuka island - relax on the beach, head up to the viewing point for a breathtaking outlook, and grab a snack at the island's cafe. Ninety years on, the Cream Trip cruise is still the best way to see the Bay.

Pass By: Bay of Islands, Bay of Islands, Northland Region, North Island

See many of the 144 Islands that make up the Bay of Islands

Absolutely amazing cruise trip. The captain was friendly, confident and humerus. We had Dolphins and stingrays swam around us, the view from the secluded island was out of this world, the boom-netting such exciting experience too. The natural beauty New Zealand can offer gives us and my children such an unforgettable memory.
There was a glitch when Viator booked and charged us twice for the booking, but they quickly fixed the problem and gave us the refund.

Great day with lovely crew. Felt very safe and the crew were passionate about their work.

They tried their best to find sea life and the commentary was very informative
