Bay of Plenty Day Tours and Activities

The Bay of Plenty in New Zealand is home to spectacular beaches and White Island - the only active marine volcano in the country. It is New Zealand's kiwifruit capital! Bay of Plenty tours and activities include a lot of water-related activities like fishing, surfing, kayaking, and swimming. Mountain biking and hiking are also available to those who want to spend some time away from the sea.

Take a guided tour of White Island and watch up close crater lakes and steaming vents that change colour and size! Go on an unforgettable guided or independent kayaking trip in Tauranga’s Wairoa River or head to Waimarino and discover the region’s own glowworm caves.

An eco-tour from Tauranga will take you on a sightseeing trip where you can swim with or watch wild dolphins, orca, seals, and whales from your boat. Learn about these animals from expert marine biologists.
